Representation for On-the-Job Injuries
The law requires that employers live up to certain standards and expectations when workers are injured on the job. While a workers compensation claim is open, you are entitled to compensation for time lost and medical expenses, as well as loss of earning power. When your claim is closed, you can cash the check sent to you without foregoing your right to have your claim reviewed as long as you, or this office on your behalf, appeals in a timely manner any order received by you. When your workers compensation benefits are not fully provided to you, you have the right to protect your rights in court.
The goal of our office is to ensure that you receive the complete benefits to which you are entitled under the Industrial Insurance Act. Just make sure you act within the timeline for appealing any order or decision.
