Workers' compensation is a no-fault benefit system that exists in all states to protect workers who become sick or injured due to their jobs or work environments. Rather than sue an employer for damages, injured workers file a claim for compensation with the employer's workers' compensation insurance company. Workers compensation benefits include payment of a certain percentage of wages as well as medical care. Unfortunately, the system is complicated and sometimes unfair. The Nordyke Law Offices is an experienced injury law firm that has helped many injured workers achieve the compensation they need.

Many times, injured workers file workers' compensation claims, and find that the process is smooth and straightforward. They inform a manager about the injury, make a claim, and receive the benefits to which they are entitled. Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. There are some circumstances in which you would be better off having an attorney represent you.
We can also represent clients who are filing third party claims. In some cases, you may be eligible to recover benefits through workers' comp as well as a personal injury claim.
If you've developed a job-related occupational disease or have been injured while at work, notify your employer quickly. If you wait, your ability to receive benefits may be limited. Promptly seek medical treatment for your injury and let the physician know that your injury occurred on the job. Be sure to notify your employer formally and to fill out the required paperwork. Time is of the essence here, and you don't want to apply after the deadline to receive workers' compensation benefits. Even if your claim doesn't have extenuating circumstances, you may seek an attorney just to help you navigate through the process. It's up to you.
