Worker’s Compensation Lawyers Protecting Your Interests
Worker’s compensation is an insurance many employers are required to carry to help ensure that employees injured on the job can be supported appropriately during their recovery. But a lot of legal and other obstacles can exist between filing a worker’s compensation claim and receiving the appropriate medical care and financial compensation for your situation. The team at the Law Office of Christopher L. Giddings, P.C. helps you navigate those challenges for the most successful outcome possible.
Some Challenges With Worker’s Compensation Claims
A successful worker’s compensation claim requires you to prove that you were injured in the course of normal job duties and that the symptoms you’re experiencing are not related to a previous injury or medical condition. If a piece of machinery falls on you and you sustain a broken leg, these requirements are easier to prove than if you suffer from a repetitive motion injury or an illness that occurs over time due to your work. Either way, the worker’s compensation lawyers at the Law Office of Christopher L. Giddings, P.C. know how to make a case on your behalf.
Another challenge with worker’s comp cases is that you have to file appropriate paperwork in a timely manner. Any misstep in the process can result in a rejection of your claim. We know how to avoid these issues or file appeals in the event that an inappropriate rejection does occur.
Types Of Worker’s Compensation Cases
While worker’s comp claims require that your injury or illness is directly related to your job, these conditions cover a wide range of types. Here are just some of the types of cases we can help with.
- Accidents that occur in the workplace, including equipment and vehicle accidents or slips and falls
- Repetitive stress injuries that occur from completing the same motion at your job over months or years
- Illness or injury that occurs due to exposure to chemicals or other elements in the workplace
