On the job injuries attorneys Medford
Oregon’s Worker’s Compensation law is in place to help employees in the event that they are injured on the job, and their injury prevents them from being able to work as they did prior. If you have been injured in the workplace, your worker’s compensation benefits will pay for your medical care, and two-thirds of your salary for as long as it takes until the time that you are capable of returning to work. However, actually receiving your worker’s compensation benefits can often be difficult in this state, and there are strict requirements and time limits in place that every employee should know. If you have been injured on the job, or suspect that something at your workplace is making you sick, it is imperative for you file your claim for workers compensation benefits immediately; there are very strict time limits that must be adhered to or you risk losing your benefits! Unfortunately, filing a “workers’ comp” claim can be extremely difficult to navigate in Oregon; this is why it is far better to hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible, in order to ensure that you are awarded the benefits you deserve in a timely fashion! The type and amount of benefits that you receive are contingent on the nature of your injuries. Some of the more common on-the-job injuries include:
- Injuries to Upper and Lower body: often caused by overexertion and repetitive motion
- Head Injuries: (head, neck, eyes, ears) often caused by falls
- Illnesses From Substances, Toxins and/or Chemicals
- Machinery & Moving Vehicles: accidents incurred while operating a work vehicle
