Employers are obligated by the law to pay for medical care, lost wages and other losses from a work-related injury or illness.
So why should you hire a workers compensation attorney?
Our workers compensation attorney Albany OR knows that the insurance companies will without conscience limit payouts or deny you benefits. Workers compensation lawyers Cary Wing Edmunson knows all the tricks that insurance companies try to play.
How Will Our Workers Compensation Attorney Albany OR Make a Difference?
In the state of Oregon, employers are only obligated to pay benefits for accepted work related conditions. The workers’ compensation insurer will state in a letter what is covered, such as “low back stress or strain.” Our attorney will review your Notice of Claim Acceptance and determine other conditions that should be covered to receive full benefits.
A pre-existing condition can easily disqualify you for benefits. Under Oregon law, the employee must prove that work-related activity was the major contributing cause by 51% or greater regardless of injury or occupational disease, rather than heredity, or a prior condition. Our knowledge and skill helps clients overcome this heavy load in regards to burden of proof.
Your workers compensation attorney Albany OR can determine if there are other claims for compensation beyond the limited benefits of workers’ compensation. We will also acquire additional documents or other medical opinions to appeal your denied injury claim.
