The Benefits You Need to Keep Going
It should be simple: you get hurt on the job, and your company—and its insurance provider—pay for your medical bills and lost wages while you heal.
Sometimes, it’s not so easy.
Workers’ compensation benefits are meant for people like you: hard workers injured on the job. Without them, you can’t pay your normal bills, much less any medical bills.
Unfortunately, some companies and their insurers begin to treat you like an annoyance after a workplace injury. A problem they don’t want to deal with.
It feels like a betrayal.
That’s why you need an experienced workers’ comp lawyer on your side. Make it a fair fight.
At Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer, we take pride in providing Real Help for Real People. Our law firm fights insurance companies every day to protect the rights of those in need—people just like you.
Get in touch today to get your case started. We’ll help you get the benefits you need to move forward.
What to Do after a Work Accident
It’s hard to process much more than your physical pain after a workplace injury.
Getting workers’ compensation benefits can be complex, however. We can help you understand the process and the steps you need to take to protect your rights properly.
What you need to after getting hurt on the job:
- Seek medical attention for any injuries or illnesses.
- Immediately report your injury or illness to your employer.
- Contact an experienced work injury attorney.
Don’t let your company, or its insurance provider, pressure you after a work accident. At first, it might appeal to you to not file a claim or take a lump sum to cover your costs.
You just want to get this over with, right?
Don’t fall for it.
You need someone to stand up for your rights. Taking a quick check or not filing a claim at all can only hurt you in the long run.
At Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer, we’ll make sure your rights are protected. The effort you’ve given your company warrants some protection in return.
