All workers should have a safe place to get their job duties done. This takes work on the part of the employer because they need to provide the protocol and tools to make this happen. While most companies take pride in having a good safety record, others really don’t. Instead, they only worry about how they can make more money, even if it means the workers suffer.
Employer negligence shouldn’t ever be ignored, so workers who are injured should ensure they are getting the workers’ compensation benefits they are due. At a minimum, the coverage should pay for the medical care for the injured worker. This includes the immediate care that’s needed, as well as follow-up appointments and other care.
There are times when the injuries are so severe that the worker won’t be able to go back to work right away. This puts them in a financial bind because they still need to cover their regular bills but can’t go to earn the money they need. Workers’ compensation offers partial wage replacement for individuals who can’t return right away.

Sometimes, workers’ compensation doesn’t approve cases in the manner they should. This can be burdensome to you. We can help you appeal the decisions so that you can get what you should.
