Helpful Information About Workers’ Compensation Claims

Has your employer or its insurer failed to acknowledge the severity of your injury, delayed or denied the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled and basically left you without a profession and livelihood?

One of the most important things you need to know, if you have been injured, is that you need to report your claim right away. Many people don’t bother to report an injury accident right away. An employer or insurer can seize on this oversight, to its advantage.

You should also know that your first benefit check should arrive within two weeks from the day you notify your employer. This check includes compensation beginning on the eighth day after your injury. Permanent disability compensation may be determined upon your ability to return to work or after recovery.

You can have complete confidence in our lawyer’s ability to protect your rights. For years, Laurie W. Maschek has worked directly with insurance companies and employers. She understands how the system works. Her many appreciative clients count her as a friend.

Laurie W. Maschek also realizes something very important that many attorneys don’t realize: There are penalties — harsh ones — for employers who don’t react properly to workers’ comp claims. Laurie understands work injury law and uses this knowledge to your advantage, to try to win maximum benefits for you.
