Every day one is at work, there is a risk that he or she will unexpectedly suffer an injury or develop and occupational illness. Certainly, some jobs are attached to more frequent or obvious hazards, but even a position that seems to be fairly safe cannot fully insulate a worker from harm. The severity of workplace injuries or illnesses can vary significantly, and in more serious cases an employee may require substantial medical treatment and might be unable to return to work for a considerable period of time.
This can introduce tremendous physical, emotional, and financial distress to a family. At Shatford Law we can help you to seek the full extent of benefits available to you through workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can be used to cover the costs of medical treatment in addition to partially making up the income gap for an injured worker.
