If you have been injured while on the job, you may be able to obtain benefits under workers' compensation. But workers' compensation is a complex system in which workers can easily lose the benefits to which they are entitled. You must file your claim properly, thoroughly document your medical care and otherwise do all you can under state law to get the benefits you need.
In some cases, employers or insurance companies will deny rightful claims. Other times, they may terminate disability payments early, or fail to pay the full amount you are owed under state law. If you were injured at your workplace, a qualified workers' compensation lawyer at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma, P.C., can evaluate your case and ensure you are meeting all state requirements for filing a claim.
- Ensuring you meet all applicable deadlines
- Getting and properly documenting all medical care
- Filing for Temporary Total Disability Benefits so you can pay bills while missing work
- Clearly and honestly explaining the law as it applies to your situation, including for disability insurance
- Working with you to establish next steps according to your needs and goals, including filing for short-term disability, long-term disability or appealing a denial
