What happens when you are injured on the job? What if you were suddenly faced with medical and/or hospital bills, and were unable to return to work in order to be able to pay them, or even your other bills? No matter the cause – whether an accident, exposure to harmful chemicals or substances, the prolonged stress of repetitive tasks, and more – any or all of these could lead to injuries, lost income, likely medical bills, and possible disability.
Thankfully, there are workers’ compensation laws in place for when you find yourself in these circumstances. From filing the initial claim to receiving money that compensates you for your medical bills and/or lost income, having a knowledgeable attorney working with you can help you most successfully manage the claims process. The attorneys at The Maring Law Firm are dedicated to our clients and will completely delve into the specifics of your case to ensure that you are receiving all the compensation to which you are entitled.
Workers’ compensation laws are intended to quickly and efficiently provide compensation for injured employees. These laws were designed as a streamlined process to ease the courts workload, by minimizing delays that cause unneeded expenditures. Due to this, an injury or disability lawsuit against your employer is not permitted. However, these laws do provide a way for an employer or its insurance company to pays the injured’s benefits without involving the time, effort, and expense of a lengthy, perhaps stressful and complicated courtroom battle. In the case of permanent injuries that were due to work-related injury or illness, you may be entitled to a lump-sum payment for the problems you’ve suffered.
Hopefully your workers compensation claim will prove easy both to make and to receive. However, since this does not always prove to be the case, we will be glad to work to help you make sure your claim process moves forward as quickly and efficiently as possible, to its best resolution. Our team is responsive and thorough when it comes to walking you through each step of your claim. We will not rush you; instead, we will counsel you and make sure you have no confusion about the workers’ compensation process. Our workers’ compensation attorneys are seasoned to this practice and have already handled numerous claims of a wide variety. So let The Maring Law Firm help you through the workers’ compensation process so you can get the benefits you need and deserve.
