Clovis Workers' Compensation Attorney
Injured at work? Get the benefits you deserve.
When you are seriously injured on the job, your life can go off the rails. You may find yourself hospitalized, or injured so that you cannot go back to work until you can function. You may never be able to return to work if your injuries were very severe or catastrophic. You should file a workers' comp claim as soon as possible.
Depending on the type of injury sustained, these claims can become complex, and it's recommended you contact a Clovis workers' comp attorney to help you. At the Law Offices of Bryan K. Leiser, we are dedicated entirely to workers' comp cases, and as a result, we have much valuable experience and knowledge in this area of law.
Who can claim workers' comp benefits?
An injury on the job is automatically handled by workers' compensation. It does not matter who caused the accident or event that led to your injuries. The benefits include being compensated for any medical bills incurred to treat your injury or condition. It's possible you will be covered for any costs associated to rehabilitation. Other benefits include:
- temporary disability
- permanent disability
- vocational retraining
- death benefits if a loved one died as a result of a work-related accident or injury.
Temporary disability means that a doctor has verified that you cannot work due to your injury, and you will be paid two-thirds of your weekly salary until you are deemed fit to return to work by the doctor. If the doctor verifies that your injury has reached the state where it will not improve or worsen, but you still can't work, your injury will be classified as permanent and stationary. You will be reevaluated at that time to determine if you have any permanent disabilities from your injury. If so, you may be entitled to compensation.
