Get Help With Your Workers’ Comp Benefits
If you were hurt on the job, you may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits. Workers' Comp is a state insurance program that pays when you’re injured on the job.
If you need to file a Workers’ Compensation claim, it's important to get a lawyer's advice beforehand. You’re going to need to deal with your employer and insurance companies. Many times, the insurance company won’t offer you all that you deserve. And, if you settle your Workers' Comp claim too soon, you can harm your case and even your future eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits.
