Can I collect workers’ compensation for an injury?
Sometimes, employers are amiable and cooperative when dealing with workers'
compensation claims. In other cases, you may have to pursue your claim
more aggressively in order to adequately cover your medical expenses following
an injury. Regardless of your situation, it helps to have a qualified
lawyer on your side who is experienced and well-versed in the steps required
for filing a claim and pursuing justice.
Workers' compensation claims can be filed when an individual is involved
in an accident on the job, including:

business. If you find yourself in this situation, then you have the right
to collect benefits from your employer.
