Workers' Compensation Attorney
Have You Been Injured at Work?
When an individual devotes the majority of their time to their employment, it is expected that when injured the costs of living and medical care will be covered by Workers' Compensation. Sadly, this is not always the case. As with any government agency, there are restrictions and limits on what can be compensated through the agency. In many cases, the amount that is provided is not enough to actually take care of the injured individual and the costs of living that they currently have. In many such cases, upon review by a workers' compensation lawyer, it is determined that the individual had failed to provide the required documentation, or had not filed for certain types of damages that they had the right to claim. When facing difficulties in the claims process, it is crucial that you get legal help. The legal team at Jowdy & Jowdy can help.
Workers' Compensation Attorney in Connecticut and New York
Injured workers and their families suffer severe financial strain and emotional devastation when injuries occur. Some work injuries can result in serious disabilities that can last for an extensive period of time, with the injured being unable to earn a living or even function in life as they had prior to the accident. Construction workers are in danger of such accidents and often suffer from dangerous or even fatal injuries while working on the job site. The injured and their families must be compensated for the damages suffered in the accident; seeking full compensation is an urgent matter, as expensive medical treatments are usually necessary, and providing for the family who does not have the income they earlier had is also vital.
Each case must be fully reviewed with the purpose of determining the best course of action in the case. If your claim has been denied, the legal team is very familiar with the appeals process and how to present the case with the goal of the best possible outcome for the client. In cases in which a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer or provider has contributed to the injury, it may be possible to seek further compensation from other negligent parties. It is vital that you act quickly in contacting the firm after suffering a personal injury such as this, as such claims must be filed in a timely manner, and full documentation of the damages can become more difficult to obtain if you wait too long.
