Almost half of all work place injuries are serious enough to cause the employee to miss work or require ongoing medical care. Worker’s Compensation laws were created to protect injured workers by providing for medical care, compensation for lost wages related to the injury and rehabilitation and/or retraining if necessary.
Because paying these claims can be costly, employers don’t always believe they are legitimate, creating undue delays in resolving them. In addition, defendants often don’t even make an initial offer. They want to pay zero—more reason than ever to give your attorney time to win a fair settlement.*
