A heavy equipment accident can happen due to a negligent operator or defective equipment. The result of the accident can be serious injuries such as broken bones, burns, electric shock, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injuries. These injuries can leave workers with huge medical expenses. Their injuries may leave them temporarily - or permanently - unable to work.
An Attorney Can Help You Get Compensation For Your Injuries
Workers' compensation benefits cover the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment, and also provide partial wages to help the worker get by. There are also vocational rehabilitation benefits to help workers forced to find a new career because of their injuries. But getting workers' compensation benefits is often not easy.
Employers and insurance companies want to pay as little as possible in workers' compensation benefits. They can challenge your claim and question the extent of your injuries. This can result in a denial of benefits. You can appeal this decision, but the process can be complicated and confusing.
