Were You Hurt On The Job? Get The Benefits You Deserve After A Work Injury.
In these challenging, unprecedented times, your job is more important than ever. If you are injured in the workplace, it is critical that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to under the law. Are you unable to return to your job? It is especially important that you claim all the economic and medical benefits available to you. To do this, you will need the help of an experienced, dedicated attorney.
At The Law Offices of Rhoda Yabes Alvarez, LLC, we understand that you may be confused by the workers’ compensation process, and we are here to help you through it. Are you worried that you will lose your job if you file a workers’ compensation claim? It is illegal for employers to fire people for filing for workers’ compensation. We will evaluate your claim, let you know what benefits you can expect and protect your rights if your employer tries to terminate you. Please speak with us to get started today.
What Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
Workers’ compensation provides coverage for all medical care and expenses related to a workplace accident or illness. This includes:
- All hospital costs, doctor visits and physical therapy
- Prescription medicines
- Reimbursement for travel expenses to medical appointments
In addition, you may be eligible for disability benefits, including temporary total disability which typically provides wage replacement benefits of two-thirds of your average weekly salary, up to a maximum amount. Other disability benefits include permanent partial disability, permanent total disability, disfigurement and death benefits for surviving family members. You may also receive vocational rehabilitation benefits if you cannot return to your previous job. We will determine which benefits you are entitled to and fight to obtain them for you.
