Workers’ compensation allows injured workers to collect benefits for any injuries sustained in during the course of performing work duties, without having to sue an employer. While workers’ compensation law can seem straightforward, it can also create significant obstacles for individuals in need of financial recovery after an accident. At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, P.C., we are experienced in helping our clients file workers’ compensation claims to recover the compensation they deserve after a workplace accident.
Most people have not been exposed to the workers’ comp system and do not know their full rights or benefits. Our legal team will take the time to understand the facts of your case, help you assert your rights, and follow appropriate steps to maximize your benefits. In some cases your employer may be unwilling or unable to help, making it difficult for you to collect the benefits you are entitled to. We offer experienced, aggressive support at every stage to ensure your rightful recovery.
In many cases, you can collect full benefits without the services of an attorney. However, it is important to know your rights before proceeding. For example, you should know that you are entitled to 100 percent of medical coverage and 2/3 of your lost wages. Our attorneys will often give advice without charging a fee, giving appropriate instruction. Should clients have any trouble, they can return to us to handle their claim.
It is important to discuss the facts of your case to protect your claims. It is also important to seek treatment right away, to inform the doctor that your injury was work-related, and to file a claim through workers’ comp, not your own health insurance carrier. We can help if the employer is not reporting the accident, refusing to send you to the doctor, or refusing to let you see a needed specialist.
