If you are injured at work or develop a condition or disease over time because of the kind of work you do, then you may be covered for treatment, lost wages and permanent damage. You need an attorney with strong experience and credentials in Workers’ Compensation Law.
Almost all employers, by law, must provide workers’ compensation benefits free of charge to their employees. The Workers’ Compensation Act was designed as financial protection for workers who are unable to perform their duties due to an on-the-job injury. It covers injuries that occur in the course and scope of employment, including repetitive traumas like carpal tunnel syndrome or hypertension for first responders. It does not matter who was at fault for the injury.At Coker Law we have decades of experience and a strong record of results in assisting victims of claim denial.
