What Conditions And Injuries Are Covered?

Fortunately, you do not need to "prove" that your employer or company was somehow lacking in safety training or care of the premises. To get benefits for an injury or illness, your injury must meet the following requirements:

  1. Occur while you were working
  2. Be a qualified injury or illness
  3. The claim must be approved

The firm can assist with cases stemming from serious accidents or illnesses such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Spine or neck injuries
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Broken bones or sprains
  • Amputations
  • Fractures
  • Back pain
  • Burns
  • Toxic exposure
  • Mesothelioma

Occupational diseases from working with dangerous materials or dangerous conditions, such as with mold or animals, are also generally covered by your insurance.

These types of issues are all qualified incidents that are owed disability compensation — though the list is not extensive. It is best to seek tailored guidance from a trusted attorney about your specific situation.

A Team That Will Fight To Ease The Difficult Path To Compensation

Compensation is not automatic — often you will have to go through many steps and prove that your job duties were the reason for your injury. You may also get denied and have to appeal.

Workers' compensation claims also become a gray area when it comes to mental health illnesses or nerve damage injuries. These need proof that they stem from a physical injury that occurred from work. If you are facing an illness or injury like this, you need an experienced lawyer's help to fight for your case.
