I hurt myself at work about five years ago, and again at a different job two years ago. I had two totally different experiences with workers compensation. At the first job, I submitted my claim, got approved, and was paid with no trouble at all. At the second job, I was discouraged from filing for workers comp, kept running up against delays, and was finally denied even though I knew I had a valid claim. I had to hire a lawyer.
I started this blog to talk about workers compensation law and how it affects workers like you and me. No one should have to feel abandoned by their workplace after being hurt while doing their job. If you have a valid claim, you can get it paid with legal assistance.
