You are injured at work, what now? After you tell your supervisor or boss that you were injured on the job, you need to learn what workers’ compensation can and cannot do for you. The notice of injury must be given usually within 30 days of the date of accident. The first time I meet with a new client, I explain the lost wages and medical benefits they will receive and how to get what they are entitled to. Workers’ compensation has its own language – MMI, average weekly wage, comp rate, and on and on. My clients know what they should be receiving from the workers’ compensation carriers and when. We are always ready to answer any client questions or take the employer and carrier to court, if necessary. We return phone calls the day of your call or at least within 24 hours.
Never settle your case without talking to a workers’ comp attorney. There is no charge to discuss your case and the insurance company pays my fees if we settle. Being injured is bad enough in and of itself. Don’t go through it alone, and have a bad experience getting your benefits when you need medical care and income.
