Wisconsin law provides all employees with the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits in the event of an injury while on the job. Many people have doubts about their ability to collect if they hold some responsibility for the accident that caused their injury. However, you do have a right to collect workers’ compensation even if you caused the accident. Studinski Law, LLC understands how Wisconsin courts and insurance companies apply employee negligence in workers’ compensation claims, and we will seek to get you a work injury recovery that is sufficient to help you move forward with your life.
Rights that you have during the workers’ compensation process include:
What Can Studinski Law Do for You?
Most employees are covered by their employers’ workers’ compensation insurance coverage. A workers’ compensation action requires that no fault be proven in your injury; we simply have to show that you were hurt in the normal course of your job. However, we strongly advise that you have an experienced attorney help you navigate your your claim. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Studinski Law, LLC have negotiated with many insurance companies as we have sought fair compensation for our clients over the years.
Taking advantages of workers’ compensation benefits can help you recover, but it is not the ideal option in all cases. These claims allow for your employer to be protected from a lawsuit regarding your injuries. Several things to consider before filing a workers’ compensation action would include:
With offices in Plover and Marshfield, Studinski Law, LLC serves clients throughout Wisconsin, including Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, and Waupaca. Whether you live in a large city or a rural town, regardless of the accident or the injuries you suffered, you have the right to be compensated for your losses. Our personal injury attorneys in Wisconsin are familiar with the Wisconsin courts in your area, and will fight to tell your story – wherever it needs to be told.
We know that a workplace injury can be very stressful, but remember that you deserve to recover physically and financially if your employer did not provide you with a safe environment or sufficient workplace safety resources. Due to the various time limits imposed by Wisconsin law, it is very important that you contact your workplace injury lawyer as soon as possible.
No two injuries are the same, and our work injury attorneys approach each case with the understanding that the victims have their own unique challenges in moving forward with their lives. Depending on the type of work that you were engaged in when you were hurt, there could be a variety of different state and federal rules and regulations that could come into play in your case to recover damages. The many different types of cases in which Studinski Law, LLC has experience include:
The damages to which you are entitled under Wisconsin workers’ compensation can help you and your family recover lost wages and pay for medical bills. Workers’ compensation benefits are calculated under a system where the insurance company considers your physical injuries. The insurance company may offer benefits or a work injury settlement to push your claim through the system. However, if they do not, we can help you get compensation for disability, lost wages, medical expenses, and more.
If a third-party suit is pursued along with seeking workers’ compensation, we can seek non-economic damages like pain and suffering, but fault must be proven. Your work injury attorney in a regular negligence claim or a third-party suit will have to show that the other party was negligent, and that this negligence was the cause of your injury. In these cases we can help you recover damages for the following in addition to medical expenses and lost wages, which are covered by workers’ compensation:
Our workplace injury attorneys have spent years handling workers’ compensation cases and extensive trial experience. We can help you get results no matter the accident.
