Workers' Compensation Coverage Lawyer

Understanding How Workers' Compensation Covers Your Workplace Injuries

One of the benefits of workers' comp is that it can eliminate the need to file a lawsuit against your employer and instead provides benefits and compensation based on what is called an "exclusive remedy."

In matters of permanent disability or death, employers are required to pay benefits to the injured worker or the deceased's family. Even if the worker is found to have erred or engaged in negligent behavior, the employer is still required to provide commensurate compensation.

Although the rules and guidelines appear straightforward, the fact is that applying them to the circumstances of your situation can be complex. To ensure that all factors are considered and that you are treated fairly, it's best to work with an experienced workers' compensation attorney who understands the local laws and work environments of your community.

Injuries And Disabilities Can Take Years To Manifest

Plenty of workplace injuries and illnesses are easily identifiable under workers' compensation — severe burns or broken bones are two examples that may require temporary treatment and disability benefits. However, there are numerous maladies that don't arise for months or years. Repetitive motion injuries, certain illnesses and impairment issues can develop over time and often require treatment that can last for the rest of a worker's life. At Brandau & Waltz Law Offices, LLP, attorney Peter T. Waltz can help you pursue just compensation for your permanent disability.
