When a worker is injured on the job, workers’ compensation benefits are designed to cover the cost of medical care, lost wages and any ongoing occupational or physical therapy needs. Those benefits are provided regardless of whether any party was negligent or at fault.
Yet a no-fault approach is no guarantee against disputes. Workers’ compensation claims can be denied, in whole or in part, leaving an injured worker without the resources needed to make ends meet until he or she is able to return to work.
Our law firm advocates for injured workers through the entire claims process. The best outcome does not always mean a speedy resolution. Our fight on an injured worker’s behalf is for the long haul.
