Make Sure You Are Fully Protected
When you’ve been injured on the job, you may be facing serious questions and concerns.
- What will I do about lost wages?
- How do I obtain my workers compensation wage?
- How will I pay my medical bills?
- How do I receive appropriate medical treatment?
- How will I afford long-term care?
- What if I can’t do my old job anymore?
- What if my employer retaliates against me for making a claim?
- What if my injury or pain gets worse or doesn’t go away?
- How long do I have to file a workers’ compensation claim?
The answers to these questions could affect you and your family for years to come, and you may not be able to necessarily rely on your employer or their insurance company to give you fair or accurate answers to those important questions.
The most important thing to do when you’ve suffered an on-the-job injury is to begin by understanding your rights. Andy Marty has decades of experience and will take the time to sit down with you and carefully go over your situation offering the legal help you need.
Act Quickly When You Have Suffered an On the Job Injury
There are a lot of things you can choose to do when you’ve suffered an on-the-job injury, but the worst of those choices is to sit, wait and do nothing. For example, in Missouri, if you don’t submit a claim in writing to your employer within 30 days of being injured, you are not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Our attorney works on workers’ compensation injuries throughout the Midwest and will make sure your claim is filed properly.
This bears repeating: If you don’t notify your employer within 30 days of the on-the-job injury or, after realizing you are injured, you lose your right to benefits.
With potential roadblocks like this in the way, it makes sense to get an experienced lawyer on your side, one with a track record of taking on big companies like:
Boeing, GM, GKN, Lowes, Home Depot, Aldi, BSM, Walgreens, Walmart, Dierbergs, ADECCO, General Electric, Mid America Peter Built, Moore Gear Manufacturing and Bodine Aluminum.
