Laws passed by the state require that your employer, or your employer’s insurance company, compensate you, or your family, for injuries or death that may occur while you are working. You may be entitled to:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work.
- Payment of your medical expenses.
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury.
If you or a loved one have suffered a workplace injury, call Cole Law Office at 800-909-LAWS (5297) or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your personal injury case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
What Should I do if I am Injured?
You should report the injury immediately to your employer. If you cannot reach an agreement with your employer or their insurance carrier, as to what benefits or medical expense payments you are entitled to, you can file your claim by yourself. You may also be entitled to a “lump sum” payment for any permanent impairment. This law office will ensure that you get ALL of the compensation you deserve.
