People work hard for their employers, both because they have to and because they take pride in their work. But sometimes employers fail to appreciate what an asset their employees are to them, and that's when injuries from unsafe working conditions can arise.
If you've suffered an on-the-job injury and your employer has tried to resist paying you the workers' compensation benefits you deserve, contact The Law Office of Casey W. Stevens today, and we can help.
No matter whose fault it was or how it happened, if you were injured while in the service of your employer, you are indisputably entitled to benefits. At The Law Office of Casey W. Stevens, we handle cases arising from the following types of work site injuries, as well as those resulting in wrongful death :
There are three types disability benefits, apart from coverage for medical bills, that can result from an on the job injury:
- Temporary Total Disability: This means that, temporarily, you're entirely unable to work. These benefits are meant to cover the loss of wages incurred from being put out of work.
- Permanent Partial Disability: Your injury is such that, while you will still be able to work in some capacity, the accident has permanently limited your capabilities and earnings potential. This can include a limp, a lost range of motion, and lingering pain.
- Permanent Total Disability: This means you will never be able to work again in any capacity whatsoever. These are extreme cases, and are the result of severe, catastrophic injuries.
