Dealing with Work Related Injuries
Making this world work is a team effort. We all have to do our part to keep the world spinning by going out, getting a job, earning a paycheck, and putting that money back into the economy. Even just going down to the store for a gallon of milk is helping pay for one of the cashier’s wages and to keep the store where they work open. In turn, that cashier will get their paycheck and they might spend it where you work, creating a cycle. It’s a beautiful system that we are a part of, at least until we get forced out of it because of a workplace injury. And believe us, workplace injuries do happen more than you might think. Luckily often times they result in just an injury and tend to not be fatal.
They do however still create the issue of taking you out of the workplace while you seek medical attention and have to recover. During that time you are still going to have to find a way to afford to live. That is where workers’ comp comes into play. Workers’ comp allows you to get paid compensation for your injury without having to file a lawsuit. In fact, it is kind of an agreement that you won’t file a lawsuit. Lawsuits can be tricky, expensive, and time-consuming so a company will offer workers’ compensation instead. You stay out of the courtroom and you get a way to survive until you are back on your feet. So if it is that simple then why do you even need an Edgewater Workers’ Comp Attorney?
An attorney can help you navigate the paperwork and make sure you are getting the full amount of compensation that you are due. Workplace injuries generally don’t happen frequently at a business, because if they did, the business would be under investigation. So it is possible that both you and the workplace don’t fully understand what is expected when filing a workers’ comp claim. An attorney, on the other hand, knows the law and will help guide you through the process. They will know the forms of compensation applicable to you. They will get your medical bills paid, lost income covered, and any form of therapy or recovery expenses that are required of the company to pay.
