Fighting for Injured Workers in Our Community
You should not have to worry about whether or not your bills are going to be paid after you suffer a workplace accident. But if the workers’ compensation insurance company is going to disrespect your claim by denying or delaying it, then you will be doing just that. Stand up for yourself with the help of our professional Lawrenceville workers’ comp attorneys from The Law Offices of Nathaniel F. Hansford, LLC.
With our extensive legal experience, you can count on us to make the most of your case. We want to get you back on your feet and working again, but not without obtaining and using as many workers’ compensation benefits as you require.
What Can You Get from Workers’ Comp?
Workers’ compensation can provide three benefits:
- Wages: A portion of your regular wages can be paid to you if you miss work due to your injury. This benefit is designed to help you keep paying your bills while recovering.
- Medical care: The totality of your medical bills incurred due to your work injury should be paid, including co-pays, prescriptions, and other miscellaneous costs.
- Disability: When you cannot work for an extended period, you might become eligible for disability benefits that replace your wages for months or years.
Is Liability an Issue in Workers’ Comp?
Liability is a legal term to describe who is to blame for an accident. In personal injury contexts, liability can stop a plaintiff from getting any recovery. But in workers’ compensation cases, liability is less of an issue because it uses a no-fault insurance system.
Under workers’ compensation, you can get your benefits even if you caused your accident. The trade-off here is that you can’t sue your employer for more compensation not provided through workers’ comp, like those related to your pain and suffering. Overall, this system is generally preferred by employers and employees alike.
