How Workers' Compensation Claims Work

Work injuries typically fall into two categories: traumatic injuries from a single event or occupational (repetitive motion) injuries that have occurred over time. Both can be severe, and both can be covered by workers' compensation benefits.

To prove exactly what caused the injury and who is to blame, you’ll need to thoroughly investigate the incident quickly. The sooner you begin, the more time you’ll have to gather evidence and eyewitness testimony.

At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we have helped file work injury accident cases involving:

icon

Head Injuries

Concussions and other head injuries on job sites are often overlooked. Whether it was caused by a motor vehicle accident or a falling object, you should receive medical care. Our attorneys will ensure you get the attention you deserve, as well as compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses, and general suffering.

icon

Slips, Trips, and Falls

It doesn’t matter if you work in a shop, factory, or even a regular office – accidents involving slips, trips, and falls are common. Your employer or other third parties can be held accountable for slippery surfaces and other hazardous circumstances. Allow our workplace compensation lawyers to defend you against big (and small) corporations and seek compensation for your injuries.

icon

Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive strain or stress on a specific part of the body can contribute to chronic injuries or even a disability. These kinds of injuries are often difficult to treat and may even force you to switch jobs. Our lawyers will examine the situation and help you obtain workers' compensation for lost wages, earning potential, and physical abilities.

icon

Crashes and Collisions

We often handle workers' compensation cases involving cars, trucks, and other vehicles. Whether a worker is struck while driving or as a pedestrian, they can sustain serious injuries.

Chet was assigned my case after my previous attorney left the firm. I was very concerned given the outcome of this case would determine my future, but I was told by the firm I was in good hands, and I was. Chet was great with communication…

You Don’t Pay Our Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Upfront

All of our workers’ compensation legal costs are billed on a contingency fee policy. That means we won’t charge you until we win a fair settlement for your case. There are no upfront fees – even your initial consultation is complimentary.

A Word from our Work Injury Attorney

Receiving maximum compensation for workplace injuries requires knowledge of workers’ compensation law, as well as the ability to identify any negligent third parties who may share some responsibility for causing an injury. It is crucial to get advice from an attorney who understands how to obtain quick and sufficient compensation for a workplace injury.

FAQs About Workers' Compensation

Q
What do workers' compensation lawyers do? Do I really need one?
A

Hiring an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer is the best way to ensure you get the maximum settlement for your case. Additionally, working with a lawyer helps cover all of your bases and understand the complications of personal injury law. Without legal aid, it can be difficult to meet all of the state deadlines and regulations.

Q
How long do workers' compensation claims take to resolve?
A

Workers’ compensation cases typically take approximately six months to one year to resolve. However, some can stretch into two to three years, depending on the complexity of the case. That’s why we recommend getting started quickly with a team that will work to expedite the process.

Q
Can I still receive workers' compensation if the accident was my fault?
A

Yes. You can file a claim under the workers’ compensation system, even if you cannot directly prove who is at fault for the incident or you are partially at fault.

Q
Can I be fired for filing a workers' compensation claim?
A

No. An injured worker’s job should not be at risk for filing a claim. If you have been injured at work and are unsure of your rights to file a claim and maintain your employment, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
