Menomonee Falls Worker’s Compensation Attorney
Workplace injuries are surprisingly common. Unfortunately, when you suffer an injury on the job, you might require medical treatment that keeps you from working while you recover. Your everyday bills continue to accrue as you recover from your injuries, and you may struggle to afford daily expenses.
In many cases, the business will try to deny the worker’s compensation claim to avoid paying the associated bills. These situations give the injured worker grounds for seeking legal counsel from an experienced attorney. The Menomonee Falls worker’s compensation attorneys at Gillick, Wicht, Gillick & Graf can help you secure fair and just compensation for your workplace accident.
Workplace Injuries and Accidents
Wisconsin’s worker’s compensation statutes are written to protect injured employees. They help assure that you can receive compensation for illnesses and injuries sustained on the job. The majority of Wisconsin workers are covered under these laws, which apply to everyone from office to construction site workers.
You may be legally entitled to receive compensation for work injures such as back, neck and shoulder injuries. These laws also cover more severe types of injuries including traumatic brain injuries. Should you happen to become fully or even partially disabled as a result of a workplace accident, you may be covered by temporary or permanent disability payments.
Although few are aware, roughly 98% of Menomonee Falls’ workers are covered by worker’s compensation laws in Wisconsin. Workers have received compensation for injuries resulting from fallen objects, malfunctioning equipment, and exposure to toxic substances. The extent of their injuries included:
- Allergic reaction
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
If these or any similar conditions apply to you, you should not be held responsible for paying the costs incurred as a result of enduring a work-related injury. Under the Worker’s Compensation Act, injured workers in both the private and public sectors may be entitled to compensation whether they work full-time or part-time.
