Over the last several weeks, we have talked about workers’ compensation, as well as the benefits of the program. When successfully obtained and maintained, workers’ compensation benefits can provide a significant financial lifesaver for those who are struggling after suffering an injury on the job. However, succeeding on a workers’ compensation claim is not as easy as it may sound, and even a successful claim could leave an injured worker in need of additional compensation to cover his or her losses.
If one decides to pursue a workers’ compensation claim, and they should if they have been injured in a workplace injury, then they need to make sure that they know what claims adjudicators are looking for before they award benefits. The legal team at Bender & Gritz has extensive experience handling these types of claims, so we know the common pitfalls into which injured workers can fall.
With that in mind, we diligently work to ensure that our clients’ claims are backed by the strongest medical evidence available to them, as well as witness accounts of how, when, and where our clients’ injuries occurred.
