Workers Compensation Lawyer for Work Accidents

Work Accident Lawyer

In the wake of an occupational hazard or illness, the most hardworking employee may find themselves too incapacitated to handle normal work duties as they did before the accident or illness. This is why the state has developed workers compensation laws.

These laws provide guidelines for assessment of injury caused to workers, as well as the benefits and money due in case claims are found to be legitimate. Workers compensation benefits are intended to replace the income lost during the time you are unable to go back to employment, as well as providing the means to pay for your recovery plan. For help with the details, hire a workers compensation lawyer.

Workers Compensation Law Suits

If you have suffered injury in your workplace, the first step is to understand what claims are covered under the workers compensation laws, and what claims are not covered. The law provides stringent guidelines about employees and their rights in pursuing compensation. Just because you were at work when the injury occurred does not necessarily qualify you for benefits under workers comp. 

Workers Compensation Insurance

According to the state’s workers compensation laws, you qualify for compensation if the incident causing injury falls under the below-mentioned:

  • The worker must have worked for an entity in a capacity that mandates them to receive workers compensation insurance coverage according to state law
  • The disability, injury or illness suffered must have occurred because of the worker’s job, and in the process of performing duties related to performance of that job
  • The worker must have served their employer with a notice in writing, detailing the incident resulting in injury at most 30 days from the time of occurrence
  • The worker must have a medical report stating that the disability, illness or injury was caused by workplace-related accidents or conditions

Regrettably, insurance providers and employers may still dispute your right to claim compensation, even when your claim qualifies on all the above points. This is why you need the assistance of a knowledgeable and experienced workers compensation attorney, to help you collect irrefutable evidence, see the appropriate medical practitioners, and do everything necessary to secure your rightful compensation. Mark Yampaglia Law PC is committed to providing the guidance necessary to process your workers comp claim and ensure your rights are protected.
