Under the law, every employer has a duty to provide employees with a safe working environment and to carry workers' compensation insurance. If you are injured on the job or as a result of your work, you may be eligible to receive workers compensation benefits for medical expenses, for the work that you miss and for disabilities or other losses you suffer as a result.
If your medical bills are not getting paid, if your weekly check is not arriving in the mail or if you are not receiving the medical care you think you need, our firm is ready to represent you. Contact us today for your free consultation with an attorney.
