Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Who Can Help
Workers’ compensation (originally known as “workman’s comp”) is a government-directed insurance program that is intended to protect both employers and employees in the event of a worker’s injury or accident on the job. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you suffered an occupational disease, such as heart disease or hypertension, or repetitive trauma in the course of your employment at a workplace such as the following:
- A construction site
- A hospital
- An office complex
- An industrial setting
- A school
- A retail outlet
Many injured workers find that the advocacy of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney is nearly essential to filing a successful claim after a serious injury on the job. An employee who was injured often has to argue persuasively at an administrative hearing and convince workers’ compensation commissioners to overturn initial denials of legitimate workers’ comp claims.
