Every job poses some sort of risk to those who perform it. It's easy to see that police officers put their safety on the line when they go on duty, and firefighters do, too. But construction workers, forklift operators, and even office personnel can succumb to workplace injuries at any given time. The type and severity of such injuries can vary widely, from a sprained back to broken bones and head injuries. Just about any injury can knock an individual out of work, though, leaving him or her fearful of how to make ends meet while they are away from work.
Fortunately, those who are hurt in a work accident can pursue compensation through the workers' compensation system. This form of insurance allows injured workers to recover compensation in exchange for their vow to not sue their employer. While workers' compensation can provide a financial lifesaver for injured workers, far too many of these individuals see their claims denied or their benefits halted too soon.
In an attempt to prevent this from happening, individuals who are injured on the job can choose to seek help from a qualified legal professional. At the Law Office of Ronald M Stein Attorney at Law, our team of dedicated professionals know how the workers' compensation system works and what claims adjudicators are looking for when analyzing a claim. We sit down with our clients and assess their situation with an eye for strengths and weaknesses. Then, we help our clients develop their claim in a way that emphasizes their strengths and minimizes their weaknesses.
Successfully pursuing workers' compensation often means gathering and presenting evidence in a compelling manner. Our firm knows how to utilize evidence, including employment records, medical records and witness testimony, to ensure that our clients stand the best chance possible under the circumstances to recover the money they desperately need to pay for their medical expenses and recoup their lost wages.
