Understanding Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance. Its purpose is to cover medical expenses and replace lost wages for employees injured in the workplace. In exchange for these benefits, the injured worker agrees not to sue their employer.

An employee who has been injured on the job can file a workers’ comp claim. This claim seeks compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and a potential permanency award.Employers should facilitate workers’ compensation claims.

However, there may be times when they are unwilling to cooperate. This can lead to the injured worker not receiving fair compensation. Additionally, workers’ comp may cover disability, rehabilitation, and job retraining costs.

Definitely would recommend Mark Wilson to anyone who’s looking for a great lawyer! Very knowledgeable, honest, reliable and compassionate. He helped me win my disability case. He truly cares about you receiving the benefits that you deserve. Is a very good listener and explained the steps of the process leading up to the hearing with the judge. Mark’s assistant Chris was always very courteous, friendly and helpful. After being denied twice on my own Mark was confident he would be able to help me receive my benefits.
