Thousands of workers across the United States are injured every day in workplace accidents. When people are hurt on the job, they don’t always know what steps they need to take to protect themselves. Being unable to work can be as difficult as the injury itself because people take pride in their work and identify with it in some way. They also take pride in themselves and their ability to make a living and provide for their families. A workplace injury can take that source of pride away.
Sometimes employees decide not to pursue a workers’ compensation claim fearing they may be demoted or lose their job. Or, they wait until after the deadline to file a workers’ compensation claim and miss out on receiving necessary medical treatment and compensation for permanent or partial disabilities brought on by workplace injuries. At Ramsay Law Firm, P.A., we take the time to teach our clients about their legal rights by guiding them through the entire workers’ compensation process.
We work as a team with our clients to craft the best solution for their unique needs because no two clients are alike.

How Do I Know If I Am Covered by Workers’ Comp?
Generally, you can rely on two main factors to determine whether your injuries qualify for coverage: first, if you’re an employee, and second, if your injury occurred as a result of your employment. However, there are many other factors that insurance companies and employers take into consideration, and they may deny your claim if, for example, you were intoxicated at work when you were injured, or if you’re in a profession that isn’t covered by the workers’ comp system. It’s important to hire a workers’ comp attorney who can assess your situation and determine whether you have a right to benefits.
What Benefits Are Available Under Workers’ Compensation?
When you receive workers’ compensation benefits, you can have your medical bills covered, including the costs of all office visits, treatments, hospital stays, and procedures like surgeries. You can also receive your regular pay to make up for lost wages, as well as temporary or permanent disability payments. After a loved one dies on the job, their surviving family members can receive death benefits, including a stipend for funeral expenses.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Though your eligibility for workers’ comp benefits may seem clear-cut, there are countless claims that are denied by employers and insurance companies for various reasons. Insurance companies often try to undermine or reject claims in an effort to save money, and they do this by looking for any lack of evidence that your injuries are work-related. By having an attorney who can gather the evidence you need to support your claim, you can make sure you receive the benefits you deserve to heal.
