Work Injury Guide
There are many "land mines" in workers' compensation cases. We have listed a few mistakes that unrepresented injured workers make. This is not an exhaustive list.
The insurance companies have staff and attorneys that are trained to navigate the workers' compensation system, so how do you know you are getting the benefits you're entitled to? It's important for you to understand the paperwork that is being mailed to you; if you don't understand it, then you could make a mistake that could affect your claim. If you have an injury that is going to affect the way your daily activities in your life and your ability to perform your current job or future jobs, then understanding the paperwork is critical.
The purpose of this guide is not to educate you on the ins and outs of workers' compensation. Rather, this guide is designed to cover some very basic issues with workers' compensation.
