If you were injured on the job, you probably have a lot of questions. One of the most common questions we receive from clients who were injured on the job is “Do I need a Workers Compensation Attorney?” Check out this article by Jerry A. Gambino, an experienced Buffalo Workers Compensation Lawyer for guidance. If you have questions about your workplace injury, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. We welcome the opportunity to assist you. This is how workers comp attorneys help:
- Taking on the workers compensation system can be extremely difficult because so many issues pop up as your case progresses.
- You won’t know the answers to questions about the correct weekly benefit amount, based on your average weekly wage and degree of disability.
- Disputing your medical bills may occur as time goes on and you’ll need a knowledgeable advocate.
- You need a lawyer to navigate the workers compensation system because the workers compensation board is a neutral party that will not help you. Neither will the workers compensation carrier, the insurance company. They are there for the benefit of the insured company. Your employer is not likely to help you through the handling of your workers compensation claim.
- You need a representative who knows how to address your workers compensation claim to go to bat for you.
This is how workers comp attorneys help with even the toughest of cases.
The Workers Compensation Benefits Attorneys Help You Get
If you have been injured at work, the benefits you receive will depend upon the extent of the injury and whether or not you can work. Our firm can help ensure that you receive the workers’ comp benefits you deserve.
Our team of Buffalo Workers Compensation Lawyers help injured workers throughout Western New York obtain their rightful benefits for all types of injuries, including:
- Neck and back injuries
- Knee, shoulder and joint injuries
- Eye and ear injuries
- Head injuries
- Burn injuries
- Repetitive injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Occupational illnesses and diseases caused by exposure to toxic chemicals and other hazardous substances
Based on the severity of your injuries and the treatments that you need, your compensation will reflect that.
If you had a broken ankle and needed physical therapy and two weeks off of work to keep off your feet, your compensation should reflect that. If you ended up permanently disabled from your workplace accident, you should see your compensation reflect this as well.
We take into consideration what type of injuries you have and how your injuries have impacted your life. Generally speaking, the more this accident costs you financially and in pain and suffering, the more compensation you should see.
