Being injured on the job can lead to a compounding series of events that place you in a mountain of debt. A serious injury can have you out of work for months, not to mention the healthcare costs associated with treatment and recovery. If you have been injured at your place of work in Wausau, Wisconsin, it is possible that you may be entitled to workers' compensation for your losses.
An injury can occur at any time, regardless of your financial state. Several laws protect injured workers at the state and federal level. Both private and public sector employers are required to compensate injured workers, yet many workers have their claims shorted or unfairly denied without the aid of an experienced attorney to negotiate on their behalf.
Wisconsin workers' compensation laws protect the majority of workers in the state suffering from a wide variety of injuries and illnesses, including -- but not limited to -- injuries that cause temporary or permanent disability. Although nearly all workers in the state are eligible for benefits, many are unaware that these benefits are available to them.
