Worker’s compensation is a unique area of law. It’s very different than personal injury. In a worker’s compensation case, the claimant is relieved of the duty to prove that their lawyer is negligent. There’s no fight over whether the employer was negligent. What you need to prove is that the worker was injured on the job.
Worker’s compensation pays for lost income, pays in percentage of the lost income, it covers the worker’s medical bills, and you can obtain a recovery for permanent injury. Worker’s compensation differs from personal injury in that there’s no compensation for pain and suffering available. The types of payments that are available in a worker’s compensation case include lost income. The worker’s compensation insurance will pay a percentage of the employee’s weekly lost income and payment for medical expenses for the treatment related to the injuries incurred on the job. Another category of compensation as recoverable in a worker’s compensation case is temporary or total disability.
The attorneys at our law firm have been handling worker’s compensation cases for a very long time. We understand the concerns of the injured worker. We understand the twist and turns that a worker’s compensation case can take before the worker’s compensation commission. We are adept at obtaining the full range of benefits available to the worker whether this is lost income, payment for medical expenses, making sure that the worker or injured employee is receiving the medical treatment that they need to get better, and if the injured employee has suffered any disability whether it is temporary or permanent that we’re getting them compensated for suffering that disability.
