If you have a workers' compensation claim and need a lawyer...turn to Kimmel Carter.
Workers’ compensation laws ensure the payment of fixed monetary benefits to employees who are injured on the job—and, in some cases, to the dependents of these employees. Qualifying injuries are those resulting from work-related accidents or illnesses, but cannot be caused by the employee’s own willful acts or intoxication.
Claimants can recover under workers’ compensation laws for such things as:
- Medical expenses, including surgical and hospital costs
- Prescription medications
- Implements such as crutches, slings, wheelchairs, and hearing aids
- Chiropractic treatment
- Physical therapy
- Nursing care
Workers’ compensation benefits are awarded through your employer’s insurance company, without the hassle of costly litigation. In turn, however, recipients of workers’ compensation benefits must relinquish their right to sue their employer for negligence. The significance of this trade-off makes it particularly important to seek the counsel of an attorney experienced in handling workers’ compensation claims.
Kimmel Carter employs skilled workers’ compensation attorneys who can assess your claim and determine what amount of compensation you are entitled to. We will ensure that your legitimate claim is not denied by your employer and its insurance company.
