Milwaukee Workers’ Comp Claims Attorneys Fight For Your Right to Financial Compensation

Warshafsky Law Personal Injury Lawyers Make the Most of a Bad Situation

A workplace injury brings a screeching halt to your livelihood, as well as future plans. Besides dealing with your injuries, you have to deal with what all too often turns into a long, drawn out, and confusing process if your employer’s insurance company denies your claim. Having an experienced worker’s compensation claims attorney on your side can make all the difference.

How Workers’ Compensation Claims Work

Workers’ compensation is a type of accident insurance paid by employers to injured workers. It’s designed to cover your medical expenses and the wages you lose while off work. Workers’ comp also provides benefits to dependents of workers who die from job-related injuries.

If you’ve been injured on the job, you need to let your supervisor and HR department know. Your employer will likely fill out the paperwork for a workers’ compensation claim (aka an “employee claim form”) since it is their responsibility to report your injury to their workers’ compensation insurance company.

After you’ve been unable to work for 3 days, you are entitled to start receiving financial compensation. The first 3 days aren’t covered unless you’re unable to work more than 7 calendar days, in which case you’ll be paid for the first 3 days you were unable to work. However, this can all be held in limbo if your employer contests your claim.

Common Workplace Injuries Requiring Workers' Compensation Claim:

What You Need to Know About Insurance Companies

Most of the time, employers and their insurance companies don’t contest workers’ comp claims and the compensation they offer is fair. Unfortunately, serious workplace injuries often leave workers unable to work for much more than 3 days. Sometimes, they’re unable to ever work again. The higher the dollar figures, the greater the likelihood the insurance company will look for ways to deny a claim or drag out the timeline for paying on it.

If you haven’t received a payment after two weeks of filing a claim, chances are good the insurance company is looking into ways to deny your claim. If they do, don’t give up. You can appeal their decision, but you’ll need experienced workers’ compensation claims attorneys behind you.
