Workers compensation is more complicated than simply being hurt on the job,
Did you know that you can also receive workers’ compensation due to toxic/chemical exposures or repetitive strain injuries? Did you also know that in certain cases if you are unable to return to your past work, you may be eligible for vocational retraining? These are just a few of the many issues the attorneys at Harris Velázquez Gibbens can help you navigate. Call today for a free consultation.
If your injuries are permanent in nature, you may be entitled to a permanent partial disability award. If you are unable to return to your employment at the time of the injury you may be entitled to additional compensation and vocational retraining.
Denied Claim. If your claim has been denied there are strict time limitations to request a hearing. Contact a workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible to discuss the merits of your claim and your options.
Third-Party Claims. Auto Accidents while on the job. If you were injured on the job by someone who was not a co-worker you may not only have a workers compensation claim but also a claim against the party who caused your injury. The most common type of third-party claim arises when you were in an auto accident while driving during work and the accident was not your fault. You would have a workers’ compensation claim and also an independent claim against the other driver.
If you were hurt on the job, call us today. We can help.
