Work-related injuries occur in almost every occupation. Construction workers, factory workers, commercial truck drivers, office employees, and all other employees can become injured during the course of their employment. Those injuries can range from fractured bones, torn muscles and ligaments, neck and back injuries, rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, hearing loss, and occupational diseases. If a person is injured on the job, the workers’ compensation attorneys at The Gori Law Firm will work to ensure the injured person is properly compensated for the injuries and protected from possible resulting financial damage.
As an injured worker, you are entitled to the necessary medical treatment, including therapy, prescriptions, and any medical supplies you may require to treat your injury. If you are temporarily disabled due to an on-the-job, you are entitled to receive temporary disability payments and if you are left with any permanent disability, The Gori Law Firm will work to make sure you are compensated for your permanent injury.
While workers’ compensation laws are complicated and continually changing, the experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at The Gori Law Firm, Ron Motil and Megan Kolosieke, know their clients’ rights, how to protect those rights, and will vigorously fight for the compensation the client deserves. We have years of proven results and vast resources to seek maximum compensation and every dollar that our clients are legally entitled to obtain on their behalf.
In Case Of An Accident Or Injury
If you experience an accident or injury:
- Report any on-the-job injury as soon as possible to your supervisor or foreman.
- You have the right to medical treatment for an on-the-job injury.
- Seek prompt medical care if needed.
- Workers’ compensation laws differ in each state regarding the right to choose a doctor. For instance, in Illinois, you have the right to choose only one doctor. It is very important that you choose a highly skilled doctor who understands the demands of heavy industrial labor and puts the patient’s interests first. Unfortunately, in Missouri, your employer chooses your doctor and that creates possible problems right from the start.
- You have the right to the payment of TTD benefits while you are temporarily unable to work due to your injuries. You may also have the right to TTD benefits if you are on restricted light duty.
- You may have the right to additional benefits, including maintenance, future medical benefits, and permanent partial disability benefits.
- Remember that the employer and its insurance company already have a staff of attorneys working for them. They do not represent you or your interests. That is why you need the skilled workers’ compensation attorneys at The Gori Law Firm fighting for you.
- Contact The Gori Law Firm to protect you and your family.
What We Will Do For You
- We will meet with you, obtain all necessary information about your injury, and will file the necessary legal documents to file your claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
- We will obtain all relevant medical records regarding your injuries.
- We will fight for your benefits and negotiate with the employer’s insurance company and adjuster, so you do not have to bear that burden during the course of your claim.
- We will seek compensation from any other person or company, in addition to your employer, who might be responsible for your injuries.
