Do You Know Your Rights As An Injured Worker?
A work accident can leave you with injuries and complications affecting many areas of your life, including your ability to do your job in the future. Many injured workers do not understand their rights in the event of a workplace accident or occupational illness, but we do. The lawyers at Taradash Johnson Janezic will walk you through the workers’ compensation claims process.
We know a serious on-the-job accident can be overwhelming. We work diligently to maximize the compensation available to you ensuring you receive your rightful benefits for lost wages, medical care, temporary and permanent disability and more. You deserve to have an experienced professional on your side, fighting to protect your interests during a complex and often frustrating insurance claims process.
We Can Help With Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
Workers’ compensation insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. They will work to avoid paying you as much money as possible, and applicants and union workers often have to deal with setbacks and delays with their claim. Not only do we work to maximize the compensation available to you, but also we will shield your interests and protect you from the following:
- Claim denials and complications involving your employer
- Undervalued claims, leaving you with insufficient support to cover your needs and losses
- Decisions to return you to the workforce before you are truly ready
- Retaliation from your employer for filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Under-payment of benefits due to miscalculation of the average weekly wage
With a family to support, medical bills and other financial responsibilities, you cannot afford to seek workers’ compensation benefits on your own. We understand the law and your rights to recovery, and we have over 75 years of combined experience advocating on behalf of injured workers. When it comes to maximizing your benefits and fighting for the full amount of compensation you need, including third parties. We do not leave money on the table.
