Recovering Compensation For Work-Related Injuries
Few people can afford to miss work for an extended period of time. However, a work-related injury may leave you with no choice. If you have been injured on-the-job, it is important to pursue the compensation you need to pay your medical expenses and to help make up for lost wages.
At Zumbado & Elmore, our attorneys help with workers’ compensation and other injury claims, helping you recover the relief you need so that you can focus on moving forward with your life.
Offering Comprehensive Workers’ Comp Representation
Any injury suffered while performing a job-related duty should make you eligible to recover workers’ compensation benefits. However, valid workers’ comp claims are denied all the time. Our lawyers can help you with the initial filing for benefits in order to help you recover the benefits you deserve as quickly as possible.
If you have filed a claim for compensation benefits and it was denied, we can help explore your options for appealing that determination and can guide you through the appeals process one step at a time, helping build a strong case on your behalf.
Help With Additional Forms Of Compensation
The workers’ compensation system is designed to remove blame from the recovery process. This means if your injury is solely your fault, you should still be able to receive the benefits to which you are entitled. The other side of this means that if your employer is solely at fault, workers’ compensation is your only avenue of recovery against your employer. In other words, you may not sue your employer for additional damages.
If your workplace injury was partly due to the actions of third party, such as the driver of another vehicle or sub-contractor not affiliated with your employer, you may be able to pursue additional damages as part of a personal injury claim.
Because our attorneys also handle personal injury matters, we can assist with both your workers’ comp claim and any potential third-party liability claims. You can rest assured that we will thoroughly explore all available avenues of recovery to help you get the full compensation you need.
