Rights of Injured Workers

When a worker sustains injuries that were caused by performing their job duties, they are entitled to compensation that can cover the cost of treatment and missed wages. At the Law Offices of Gary Rodich, our workers’ compensation team recently achieved an $85,000 settlement on behalf of a client who sustained a repetitive work injury over the course of several years.

Our client visited a doctor while she was still working, but did not report her complaints to her employer. Ultimately, she was terminated and, after her termination, she filed a workers’ compensation claim, which the defendant denied, arguing that she filed the case in retaliation. Once the matter was set for court, however, the defendant offered $10,000 to essential buy the client’s peace. We instructed our client to reject the offer and ultimately settled the case for $85,000.

Know Your Rights

As a worker, it is important to know your rights, especially when you sustain an injury. If your employer is pressuring you into not filing a claim or arguing that you do not have a claim at all, our experienced workers’ compensation team can fight on your behalf to protect your rights and ensure you do not have to bear the financial burden of your workplace injuries.

After being injured at work, it is crucial to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. You may receive disability payments even if you are only partially disabled. Additionally, you can also file an appeal if your initial claim is denied.
