Compensation For Injuries
Accidents happen. Injuries at work are not only limited to people working in warehouses or industrial settings, but also office workers. Carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back injuries, and injuries from falling off platforms or ladders are common examples of work-related mishaps.
If you obtained an injury on the job, Smith Ammons legal solutions can help you recover compensation for your injuries, medical bills, as well as loss of wages.
Filing a Worker's Compensation Claim
An injury you sustained while carrying out your work-related duties can constrain your movements, cause pain, or prohibit you in some other way from carrying out your duties and going to work to earn your income. Such an injury can also result in personal financial costs to you personally, especially if you had to undergo medical treatment.
It is for this reason that certain state and federal laws make provisions for workers’ compensation benefits. The goal of these benefits is to provide you with the income that you lose out on while you are busy recovering from your injury.
Pursuing compensation, however, can pose a challenge to an injured worker, especially if they have no experience with filing and litigating workers’ compensation claims. In many cases, even eligible claims are disputed by employers and their insurance providers.
If this is the case with your workers’ compensation claim, it is important that you find a reputable attorney with in-depth knowledge and experience on these matters. Smith Ammons is a reputable law firm with a high success rate and excellent track record, especially when it comes to successful workers’ compensation claims.
According to a federal and state laws that relate to workers’ compensation, you are entitled to receive a number of benefits, including permanent total, permanent partial, or temporary partial disability benefits. Depending on the injury, you may also be entitled to claim for medical benefits, loss of wages, or vocational rehabilitation benefits.
These laws include state workers’ compensation acts that make provisions for payments to employees when they’ve sustained injuries while carrying out their work-related duties without having to engage in legal action with their employer.
The primary goal of some of these laws is to place liability on the employer to pay benefits to an eligible employee without taking negligence from either the employer or the employee into account. It is important to remember, however, that the employee had to sustain the injury as a result of their employment and that an employer-employee relationship has to exist.
