No matter the field you work in, there is some level of risk. While construction work presents risks of falls or injuries caused by tools, an office job holds risks of carpal tunnel syndrome and slip or trip injuries.
The impacts of a work accident can be significant, impacting you physically, emotionally, mentally and physically. At Connell & Foresta, our law firm understands this. As such, our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys can guide you through the process of collecting the workers’ compensation owed to you.
There are immediate and long-term goals when it comes to work injuries. We understand that you want to heal and get back to work as soon as possible, so we take the time to help you understand what that looks like as we establish the medical care and financial support you will need to reach the goal of recovery and returning to work.
Applying for benefits
While it would be ideal if this process was easy, the reality is that many issues could be encountered when you seek workers’ compensation benefits. It is possible to face a denial. We understand this is frustrating; however, we also know that an appeal could be very successful.
Additionally, if there is a third party liable for your injuries, our law firm can help you pursue compensation from them as well.
No matter the work environment, a workplace injury could cause a worker to miss a significant amount of work while they recover and treat the injury. Missed work means missed pay checks, resulting in financial difficulties to join the physical and emotional troubles you are already suffering.
