Problems Receiving Workers Compensation Benefits

If you are injured on the job do not be denied the Workers Compensation Benefits you deserve
In most MO workers compensation cases, the injured worker will encounter problems getting the benefits that they deserve. Either there is a delay in getting them or they are denied completely. The following is a list of some of the most common problems encounter for the injured MO worker.
1) You have been released from medical treatment, but you still need care. In this all to common scenario, the injured worker is stuck in a very tough spot. On the one hand, their personal medical insurance does not cover treatment for injuries that occur at work. On the other hand, the other option is telling the injured worker that they are not going to provide any more treatment either. If this is happening to you, it would be wise to hire an experienced workers compensation firm like Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC to help get you the medical treatment that you deserve. We have a handful of options to help achieve this goal such as a mediation with an Administrative Law Judge, or we could obtain an independent medical evaluation to get an opinion from another doctor as to your need for more medical treatment. Either way, we can help solve your workers comp benefits problem.
2) You have been off of work for a period of time but are not receiving weekly checks. Work comp insurance companies know that if you are unable to work you will not have much if any money coming in to help support yourself and your family. This pressure is designed to put you in a situation where you are nearly forced to take a workmans compensation settlement offer that is far below what you are entitled to. At Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC we can help get you those weekly checks so you can provide for yourself and your family while you obtain proper medical treatment. This will also allow you to proceed at a proper rate towards settlement or a hearing and are not forced into a smaller amount of money to end the workers compensation case.
3) You have been offered a workers compensation settlement based upon your injuries, but you feel that it is way too low and does not adequately reflect the type of injury you suffered. Again, the workers comp insurance companies are experienced at this process and you are not. They know that your lack of knowledge is to their advantage. They might be willing to offer you some money to settle the case, but without that experience, you will have a hard time knowing if it is a proper amount. Allow our knowledge and experience to guide you in making this critical decision.
4) You are being offered a workers compensation settlement of a larger amount of money, but you can no longer work anywhere. In this case, it is of critical importance to obtain legal representation to help with this life changing need. The inability to earn income for the rest of your life is a major burden to have to endure. It is possible that you are entitled to weekly checks for the rest of your life. Allow us to review your case to help conclude if this is a benefit you are entitled to. Don't leave this up to the insurance company to decide.
