There are a number of different advantages that an injured employee may experience under workers' compensation laws. Injured workers have the right to prompt medical treatment and to financial benefits for any work-related injury or illness.
This may even include an incident that was linked to the injured employee's own carelessness or behavior. Without having to prove specific negligence on the part of the employer or another party, a worker can seek workers' compensation benefits.
The only requirement is that the injury is related to the employee's job. At the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote, we work to protect our clients' rights and interests in the process of filing for workers' comp and handling any disputes that may arise.
