Even... Call Steven!
compensation was created by state law and is a program that provides
medical, income, and a host of other benefits to individuals who
are injured in the course of employment.
individuals who are injured on the job do nothing but report the
injury. Their employer takes over and sends them for medical treatment,
then begins paying the employee's income benefits based on the
employee's past wages. For a minor injury, the employee receives
medical treatment and income benefits when required, then goes
back to work. Treatment and medical expenses are paid for by the
employer without the employee ever filing a claim.
sometimes, for whatever reason, the employer does not accept the
injury as compensable, but contests the claim. There may be other
times when an employee receives a "life changing injury"
and is faced with the probability of never being able to work
again. In these situations, contact Steven V. Bennett. He represents
employees for all work-related injuries and can answer your questions
about your claim, including benefits allowed, catastrophic injury
status, future benefits, and Medicare-Set Aside Accounts.
