About Workers' Compensation
Workers' compensation claims for on-the-job accidents or occupational diseases generally provide for wage loss replacement and coverage of medical expenses for causally related injuries and conditions subject to the Workers' Compensation Board's Medical Treatment Guidelines.
All work-related injuries should be evaluated by an experienced workers' compensation attorney and legal team to determine the status of a claim, whether there are additional monetary awards due the injured worker, and to confirm the future legal rights of the injured worker.
When a worker is injured on the job or develops a condition requiring medical care and that may result in lost time from work, we recommend that the following steps be taken as soon as possible:
- File a written incident report with the employer and keep a copy for personal records;
- Obtain medical evaluation and treatment at any onsite employer medical facility or offsite emergency room, urgent care facility, family physician, and/or specialist;
- Make sure that all injury sites and conditions are included on the incident report filed with the employer and are reported to all health service providers, so that there is notice of and medical evidence to support each injury site and condition.
Our experienced attorneys, legal representatives, paraprofessionals, and support staff are available to assist injured workers and their families after work accidents or the onset of disability under the Workers' Compensation Law and Social Security Disability Benefits Law.
