When you experience an injury at work, it can be confusing. You may be asked to fill out paperwork for your boss. You may begin to get calls from a claims adjuster. If you are fortunate and treated fairly, you will be given the opportunity to get medical attention immediately and your employer will take responsibility for paying for that treatment. But what are your rights? What is your employer supposed to do? When do you have to go back to work? What happens if you have to miss work for an extended period of time?
When bills start coming due, the rent or the mortgage payment comes up, you need to know that you can meet your obligations. Our attorneys will work to ensure that your employer (and their insurance carrier) meets their responsibilities. We can file your claim, deal with the insurance representatives, and explain your rights. We can also organize your medical records and prepare the case for trial if necessary. Work injury cases always seem to go smoothly until they don’t. Suddenly, the “adjuster” does not seem to be returning your calls. Your disability checks come later and later. Or you find out that your prescription is not being paid for. This is when you need an attorney with experience at the Workers’ Compensation Commission, who can answer questions and get you the benefits you are entitled to under the law.
