Workers' Compensation

Hayward Workers Compensation Attorneys

Every year thousands of workers experience job-related injuries or illnesses. If hurt at work, a person is entitled to receive medical treatment and wage replacement through worker's compensation. At Lein Law Offices, our Eau Claire injured worker attorneys provide experienced representation to individuals and families who are entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

Wisconsin has the oldest worker's compensation system in the United States. If you were working for someone else and suffered an injury incidental to your work, you are eligible for worker's comp. Contact our Hayward workers' compensation lawyers today to protect your rights and benefits.

What Is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation is paid to the injured worker or his or her family to cover all medical expenses and a percentage of lost wages caused by a work-related injury. Unlike a personal injury claim, you do not have to prove the fault of your employer, but only that the injury occurred in the course of performing work duties. Every employer must have worker's compensation insurance to cover costs in the event of such an injury.

What Should I Do If I Was Injured On the job?

If you were injured at work, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Our workers' compensation attorneys will explain your rights and explore options in filing a worker's compensation claim. We can represent you at any stage of the process, from the initial application through issues with temporary to permanent disability.

If you have reached maximum expected medical recovery and are permanently disabled, we can assist you in negotiating a lump sum settlement or in collecting permanent disability.

When Does My Coverage Begin?

Worker's compensation coverage begins the moment you begin working for an employer. An employee is entitled to worker's compensation regardless of:

  • How long he or she has been an employee of a particular employer
  • Whether he or she is a probationary employee or in training

What If I Did Not Receive Benefits?

If you are an employee who did not receive the benefits you feel you were entitled to, you may be concerned about whether you should return to work, how you will pay your bills and what recourse you have. The attorneys at our firm will provide you with a free consultation and can help you address these tough issues.

How Much Will It Cost?

You will not have to pay any money out of pocket for our services. Lein Law Offices works on a contingency basis and will not collect any payment unless you receive the benefits you are entitled to. You have rights. If you believe that an insurance company is treating you unfairly, we can aggressively pursue your benefits and claims.
