WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU'VE BEEN INJURED AT WORK?
If you've been injured while on the job, you may have a lot of questions weighing on your mind, such as:
- How will you earn money for your family?
- Who will take care of you while you recover?
- How will you get compensation? All of these are important to ask.
Our attorneys can help answer these questions, as well as walk you through the legal process of a workplace injury.
The legal team at Ricci Law Firm, PA aims to emphasize the importance of knowing your options. After you've been hurt at work, there are different courses of action you can take. For instance, if your employer is required to carry workers' compensation insurance, then you may be able to apply for benefits, which may include:
- Medical benefits
- Disability benefits
- Mileage reimbursement (between your home and medical facilities)
- Rehabilitation reimbursement
However, by claiming workers' compensation benefits, you cannot pursue legal action against your employer.
Another option to consider is filling a lawsuit. Whether your injury was caused from someone else's negligence, or if your company didn't offer workers' compensation insurance, you may be able to file a claim to reimburse you for the costs associated with your injuries. These reimbursements can be used to cover expenses, such as:
- Current and ongoing medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
