Workers' compensation, often referred to as workers' comp or workman comp, is an insurance policy employers pay to cover the cost of medical bills and lost wages that result from job related injuries or diseases. However, just because you were injured at work does not mean getting workers' compensation benefits is easy.

Our attorneys are committed to helping injured workers get the workers' compensation benefits they deserve. We offer free in-person initial consultation to discuss your injuries and how we can help.
Typically when people think of job related injuries what comes to mind is slip or fall that causes neck and back injuries. These injuries are common in the construction industry and light manufacturing industries. However, a variety of injuries are covered by workers' compensation including repetitive stress injuries and occupational diseases.
If you are injured at work you must go to a doctor on your employer's list of approved physicians. It is also important to inform your employer as soon as you have been injured, and go to the doctor for a complete examination, and accept assignments for light duty that are offered by your employer.
