Being injured at work goes beyond simple pain and suffering, it can impact you significantly in terms of medical expenses and lost wages if you’re unable to perform your job duties for any length of time. With so much at stake, you want a team to handle your case with empathy, legal savvy, and tenacity to pursue and defend your claim against insurance companies.
State laws require employers with three or more employees to carry workers’ comp insurance. This insurance holds employers strictly liable. You don’t have to prove fault for the injury - just that it occurred during your job duties. This insurance covers medical expenses related to the injury and provides lost wages for time out of work due to the injury.
The insurance companies seek to protect their own financial interests by limiting their own financial responsibility which results in denied or delayed claims or you being offered a fraction to which you’re entitled.
