Workers' Compensation

To be eligible for Worker’s compensation benefits, you must have been injured while performing your job duties. The injury can be caused by an accident or it can be the result of repetitive stress. If you are unsure whether Worker’s compensation covers your injuries, our attorneys can review your case and advise you on the best course of action.

If your Worker’s compensation claim is approved, you will be eligible for a number of different benefits. These benefits can include medical expenses, lost wages, and disability payments.

The length of time it takes to get approved for benefits depends on the insurance company. In most cases, the insurance company will make a decision within 30 days. However, some insurance companies may take longer.
The most common Worker’s compensation injuries include back injuries, neck injuries, and repetitive stress injuries. Other common injuries include broken bones, burns, and psychological injuries.
