Fighting For Injured Workers For More Than Three Decades
When you suffer an injury on the job, you rely on the company to hold up its end of the bargain. You rely on your employer to be honest and provide you with the benefits you are entitled to.
Getting workers’ compensation benefits should not be a fight, but it often is. When you need someone to stand up for you, I will be there. From Missouri or Illinois, call me toll free at 888-320-6893.
How Employers Try To Get Out Of Paying Full Benefits
When you are injured at work, your employer is required by law to provide you with the medical treatment you need in order to fully recover. If you are forced to miss work, you are entitled to temporary total disability benefits — two-thirds of your average weekly wage.
When you’re injured on the job, your employer will likely send you to see a company doctor. After seeing you, this doctor might claim that you are able to work, thus relieving the company of paying full benefits.
Meanwhile, you are unable to work and the bills begin to pile up — together with your injuries and the pain you are dealing with every day. You know you are injured and can’t work no matter what the doctor says, and you’re not sure where to turn to get help.
