Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is a critical safety net for employees who suffer injuries or illnesses while on the job. Despite its importance, the process of filing a claim and receiving benefits can be fraught with complexities and obstacles. Many workers are unaware of their rights or are hesitant to file a claim, fearing retaliation from their employers. However, the law safeguards employees from such retaliatory actions, making it crucial to have experienced legal representation from the outset.

The Landscape of Workers' Compensation Workers' compensation laws vary by state but generally aim to provide injured workers with medical care, wage replacement, and vocational rehabilitation. Yet, according to a 2020 study, a significant number of eligible workers do not file for workers' compensation benefits. This gap underscores the need for education and advocacy in this area of law.
