Auto manufacturing workers can suffer a wide range of injuries. These include back injuries, muscle sprains and strains, and broken bones. Spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries are two more serious examples. These injuries require medical treatment and cause injury victims to miss time from work, resulting in lost income.
Workers' compensation benefits are set up to help injured workers. These benefits pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment - including the costs of surgery, hospitalization, doctor's visits, medication and therapy. In addition, injured workers can receive partial lost wages while they are unable to work.
Getting Those Benefits Can Be Difficult. Our Law Firm Can Help.
But first, a claim for benefits has to be approved. That's where employers and insurance companies can make things difficult. They may challenge the claim in different ways. For example, they may claim an injury was pre-existing and didn't happen at work. They may question whether certain medical treatment is necessary. Or, they may say the worker is healthy enough to return to the job.
That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney fighting for you. Employers and insurance companies have their own lawyers looking out for their best interests. Our lawyers are only interested in a resolution of the case that meets your needs. Our firm has been fighting on behalf of injured workers for many years.
