Workers Compensation Lawyer, Inc., “Fighting for the Average Joe”® When Injured in Common Job Accidents
All too common, workers in certain occupations are exposed to serious injuries and fatalities. Workers in transportation and material moving and construction/extraction occupations and building and grounds maintenance experience more injuries than in any other jobs. As an employee, you work hard for an honest dollar. But the very nature of your occupation or because of your employer’s disregard for your safety, you have been seriously injured. If your injuries cause you to be unable to work and earn an income, you have a right to receive medical care and untaxed disability wages.
According to Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety’s 2018 Workplace Safety Index, serious workplace injuries cost businesses more than $58 billion in 2018, a nearly 3 percent increase from last year. Because of these losses to employers, they often strive to deny claims to reduce their insurance costs and liability. When you’ve been injured on the job, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim. Yet the process is complicated and deadlines for filing strict. If you don’t fill out forms properly and file paperwork on time, your benefits could be permanently denied. Though workers’ compensation insurance companies know an employee being injured through no fault of their own while conducting work tasks is not uncommon, they may deny legitimate claims hoping you’ll give up and not follow through on obtaining the benefits to which you’re legally entitled.
With all you’re facing, workers’ compensation attorney Brian W. Freeman, “fighting for the Average Joe®,“ understands what you’re going through. As a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer, Inc. client, you will receive skilled representation along with the respect, understanding, and support you deserve.
