Injured At Work? We Will Help You Obtain The Compensation You Are Entitled To
Workman’s Comp, also known as Workers’ Compensation, is a state-mandated insurance program that provides benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses. These benefits may include medical expenses, lost wages, disability payments, and more.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to an employer’s negligence, don’t hesitate to contact Bouhasin Law Firm today. Attorney John Bouhasin is committed to helping you obtain the compensation you need to get back on your feet and move forward.
What Benefits Am I Entitled To Under Workers’ Compensation?
As an employee, you have the right to a safe and healthy work environment. Sometimes, however, an employer’s negligence can result in injury or illness. Whether it’s a slip on a wet floor or repetitive strain from hours of typing at your desk, workers’ compensation insurance can provide needed compensation for medical care and missed wages.
Our team has helped countless individuals obtain the compensation they deserve. In Missouri, workers’ compensation can cover the following after a work-related injury or illness:
- Medical Expenses: Necessary and reasonable medical care related to your work injury or illness, including hospitalization, doctor visits, prescriptions, physical therapy, and any other treatment recommended by your doctor.
- Temporary Disability Payments of up to two-thirds of your average weekly wage
- Permanent Disability: If you suffer a permanent disability that prevents you from returning to work (such as loss of a limb), workers’ comp will provide you with benefits to compensate for your loss of earnings.
- Death Benefits: If the injury or illness results in death, workers’ compensation may also provide benefits to survivor dependents
Despite what may appear to be generous benefits under workers’ comp, the workers’ compensation insurance company is still looking out for its bottom line. If you believe that you have been unfairly denied workers’ compensation benefits or receive an inadequate settlement offer, contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney immediately.
