When the Whistle Blows Without You
As an Arkansas worker, your number one priority is providing for your family. That requires you to be on the job and healthy every time that whistle blows, but it only takes a moment for all that to change. A workplace injury does more than sideline you for a given amount of time; it jeopardizes your financial security and that of your family as well. And workers’ compensation may not be enough.
Workers’ comp claims are paid by insurance companies. It’s similar to other types of insurance in the fact that your employer pays the insurance company premiums in order to provide their injured employees with benefits in the event of an accident. However, the insurance company has every motivation to pay you as little as possible for that workers’ comp claim, which could leave you with a massive debt if the money doesn’t cover all your medical bills.
But your injury isn’t only going to cost you medically. You also need compensation for lost wages and other expenses you’re bound to incur. Getting that money on your own can be difficult, which is why you should call an experienced Arkansas workers’ compensation attorney immediately. Our workers’ compensation team will work to maximize your workers’ comp claim. Don’t try to go it alone. Contact us today.
