Why a Workplace Injury Attorney Can Help
If you have experienced a workplace injury, you may be entitled to compensation to help with loss of income, medical expenses, and long term care expenses. In many cases, a workers compensation claim is filed, and the injured employee receives the damages that are awarded. Workers Compensation Damages are typically awarded based on:
- Total permanent disability
- Total temporary disability
- Partial permanent disability
- Partial temporary disability
Unfortunately, because of the laws and regulations that govern workplace injuries, receiving the compensation necessary to cover your added expenses is not always so cut and dry. Depending on the state, time frame, and the nature of the accident, limitations are often placed on damages that can be received and the type of action that can be taken. The Simmons Law Firm can help guide you through this complicated and sometimes overwhelming process. Our injury lawyers will review your case and offer advice on whether you may be entitled to additional compensation. Schedule your free legal consultation today.
