Injured in a Workplace Accident?
Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Of Western New York
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance for employees who are injured in the workplace. It pays medical expenses, replaces lost wages and provides other compensation for the injured employee; in return, that employee agrees not to file suit or take other legal action against the employer. The intent is to protect workers who are hurt on the job, as well as eliminate the need for litigation and the costs that go with it.
Workers’ compensation is meant to streamline the process of dealing with work-related injuries, such as back injury, traumatic brain injury, and loss of limb or limb function, as well as chronic conditions like respiratory ailments, carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries. The system protects workers with no-fault treatment for work injuries, and it protects employers from legal claims of negligence.
The experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh know, unfortunately, that the system can be abused. Employers and supervisors have been known to prevent injured workers from filing a workers’ comp claim or they make the process overly complicated.
If you have been hurt on the job and denied treatment or other compensation, contact our skilled workers’ comp attorneys to help get the treatment and compensation to which you’re entitled. We will work with you throughout your treatment and recovery to make sure you receive all the benefits necessary for your recovery, which may include:
- Medical care, including long-term
- Permanent and temporary disability benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits
Our workplace injury attorneys can help you better understand the workers’ compensation system and what to expect with your case. With our legal team on your side, you can rest assured you won’t be denied benefits because of a technicality, pressured to accept less than adequate compensation or otherwise mistreated by those in the system.
