Details regarding a workers’ compensation claim

Have you been injured on the job? Are you caring for a loved one who was injured at work? If so, you need to understand all the finer details associated with your health and finances.

From a health perspective, follow the guidance of your medical team. When it comes to your finances, you need to learn more about filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

Although a workers' compensation claim is more complex than many people believe, once approved you're able to receive benefits until you can return to work.

As an injured worker, you are entitled to the following:

-- A medical evaluation and treatment by a doctor of your choice.

-- Medical mileage reimbursement.

-- Temporary total disability payments.

-- Compensation for any permanent scarring or disfigurement.

Unfortunately, it's not always easy to receive workers' compensation benefits. Instead, you could run into an issue, such as a denied claim. If this happens, you need to fight back.

At our law firm, we know what it takes to help our clients receive full and fair compensation following a workplace injury. It's not always a quick process, but there are steps you can take that improve your chance of receiving benefits in the future.

You hope that you are never injured at work, but if this happens you need to take the right steps at the right time. Your health comes first. Once you have a treatment plan in place, you can then turn your attention to filing a workers' compensation claim with the idea of receiving benefits until you can return to work.
