Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation benefits are your right. But many people hesitate to file claims after an on-the-job injury because they are afraid of the consequences of doing so. It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for filing a workers' compensation claim. In addition, when you're injured, workers' compensation may be the only way available to secure the compensation you need to recover. If your claim is approved, workers' compensation benefits include funds to pay for:

  • Medical treatment
  • Partial disability (a portion of your lost wages for a limited time)
  • Permanent disability (based on the severity of your injury)
  • Occupational training (if you're unable to return to your previous position)

Our knowledgeable lawyers at Lee Durham, LLC, can answer any questions you have about the workers' compensation process, including:

  • How long it takes
  • If you can choose your own doctor
  • If you'll be paid while out of work
  • What disability covers
