No one wants to feel that they can no longer work and contribute at their job, especially when your paycheck is critical for the well being of you and your family. Without a dependable and expected source of income, your home, financial heath, well being and quality of life can be in serious danger and a workers’ compensation claim may be critical.
Injury can occur for a number of reasons:
- Unsafe working conditions
- Tasks above and beyond the work description
- Falling items or debris
- Equipment malfunction
- Ladder accidents
- Heavy machinery incidents
- Loading dock incidents
Even when an injury obviously qualifies for workers’ compensation, there are many obstacles and people can be unjustly denied. In truth, the rules and guidelines for workers’ compensation are very strict and getting approved often takes an experienced attorney to win a claim.
