Helping You to Understand Your Right to Workers’ Compensation
The right of workers who are harmed while performing work on the job to recover workers’ compensation benefits often varies on an industry-by-industry basis. For example, many truck drivers are misclassified as independent contractors, and therefore may not be considered “employees” by workers’ compensation standards. Additionally, some agricultural employers are exempt from the workers’ compensation coverage requirement.
When you call our law offices, we will help you to understand the rights that pertain to your industry, your specific position of employment, and your worker classification. We can also help you to understand how to file your claim for workers’ compensation, common bars to a full recovery amount and errors that claimants make, and what to do if your workers’ compensation claim is denied.
