Getting Answers to Worker's Comp Questions
The expenses and consequences of workplace injuries can be devastating. There are doctors and hospital bills to pay at a time when you may not be able to work for a period of time, perhaps indefinitely. What is covered? How much financial and medical help is available? For answers to those questions, you need to talk to a qualified Workers' Compensation lawyer, such as Mr. Hansen.
Under workers comp, injured employees receive medical care for their injuries, lost wages, help with retraining, and payment for permanent injuries. When someone dies as the result of a workplace accident, the family receives benefits. However, when a worker accepts these benefits, he or she cannot sue the employer.
