What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation, also referred to as workers’ comp, provides lost wage disability and medical benefits to an employee who gets hurt, becomes ill or dies from a workplace accident or occupational disease. Each state has workers’ compensation laws designed to protect workers and their families from financial and medical hardships that arise from workplace injuries.

If You Have Suffered a Workplace Injury

If you’ve been injured on the job, you may be entitled to certain benefits under the workers’ compensation laws of your state. The best way to learn if you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits is to talk to a qualified attorney who works to protect your rights and will make sure you receive any money and medical treatments that you are due under the law.

Neither your employer nor their insurance company has to inform you of your rights. They will be working against you, not for you.

An attorney will deal with situations on your behalf, including:

Denial by your employer that you were injured on the job;
Denial of medical treatment;
Failure to receive lost wage benefits;
Failure to receive a benefit you have been promised;
Negotiation with the workers’ compensation insurance company when settlement of your case is    appropriate.

The Law Offices of Andrew V. O’Shea offer free initial consultations to discuss your case. We accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we do not get paid unless you are awarded lost wage benefits or we negotiate a settlement that you approve.
