Those who are injured on the job face numerous challenges. Many are unable to return to work, while some of our clients have to take a lower paying job due to new limitations. Others face a permanent injury that requires a lifetime of expensive treatment, without the benefit of health care insurance. In any of these situations, the injured parties often have to deal with employers who do not want to treat their employees fairly. Some employers will deny a claim, while others seek to minimize the recovery and benefits. At Pignatelli & Associates P.C. our duty is to ensure that our workers’ compensation clients receive money to pay for their necessary medical care, lost wages, permanent disability, and when necessary, disability benefits.
Helping Clients Obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits
As a working employee, you expect your employer will treat you fairly and in accordance with the law should you sustain an injury on the job. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Many employers want to minimize your claim, for fear that their premiums will increase. They also worry about hiring back an injured employee. These acts are not only unfair, they can be illegal.
