Get Compensation After A Work-Related Injury
An injury can hurt you twice: first with the damage it does to your body, and then with the damage it does to your career and your ability to make a living. If you sustained an injury in the course of doing your job, you might be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to help tide you over until you get back to work.
If you wonder whether your injury falls under the scope of workers’ compensation even though you were on the road when you were hurt, talk to a knowledgeable lawyer. Charles H. Brower and Associates, A Law Corporation, will help you understand your rights.
Legal Support After A Work Injury, From Start To Finish
Learn what your rights are as an employee who has been injured on the job. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and rehabilitation, compensation for loss of bodily function, replacement of lost wages and vocational rehabilitation (retaining) if you are no longer able to work at the same job as a result of your injuries.
In addition to a workers’ comp claim, there may be a third-party liability claim or lawsuit to file if someone who is not your employer was negligent. (For example, an equipment manufacturer’s or a subcontractor’s wrongdoing may have caused or contributed to your accidental injury.)
Charles H. Brower and Associates, A Law Corporation, will also work to ascertain whether you are entitled to any other compensation after a workplace accident. For example, you may qualify for benefits from private disability insurance, or for Social Security Disability Insurance if you will be unable to work for a year or more because of disabilities stemming from the workplace injury.
