Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Although there are certainly some jobs and industries that carry a higher risk of injury for employees, workplace accidents can happen in any industry. From repetitive motion injuries and minor slips and falls to vehicular accidents and injuries caused by heavy machinery, suffering through any workplace injury can have a number of serious repercussions, including physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial burdens. Fortunately, many companies are required to hold workers’ compensation insurance, providing a way for injured employees to secure the financial benefits they need to cover their injury-related losses.

However, understanding your rights and filing a successful claim for workers’ compensation benefits is not always easy. Claims can be denied initially, there is a great deal of paperwork that must be filled out, and you must provide certain types of documentation; all of these factors serve to make the process of actually securing benefits much more difficult. Fortunately, having the support of a workers’ compensation lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., can make the process of applying for benefits much easier, and can increase your chances of securing the financial assistance you need.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation was created to benefit both employee and employer.  It is an insurance that is paid by the employer dedicated to any employee that is injured on the job, including illnesses.  Workers will benefit from medical treatment and payment, as well as wage loss protection when a workers’ compensation claim is won.

 

What to do if You’re Involved in a Workplace Accident

If you have been injured in a workplace accident and are seeking workers’ compensation it’s imperative that you report your injury to your employer right away.  Below is a list of items that will help you with your workers’ compensation claim:

 

  • You should get medical treatment as soon as possible, no matter the severity of the injury.  If your injury does not require emergency treatment, a medical provider should be provided and designated by the employer.
  • You should submit a written account of your injury to the employer within four days of sustaining the injury.
  • Find a responsible and knowledgeable Denver, CO workers’ compensation attorney who is capable of aiding you and supporting you through filing your claim.

In all cases, your workers’ compensation lawyer will fight to get your medical expenses paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, as well as any necessary financial compensation for lost wages due to your workplace accident.

 

Below are the workers’ compensation benefits that may apply to your specific case:
