Long-Term Issues Caused Due to a Work-Related Injury Are Covered

When factoring in proper compensation for a workers' injuries, it's imperative that you look long-term at how this injury will affect that workers' life.

We recently read that an injured employee received upwards of $7 million in compensation for injuries he suffered in a scaffolding injury. The employee now suffers from reflex sympathy dystrophy, forcing him to walk with a crutch and take heavy painkillers for the rest of his life, according to his lawyer.  

Had this injured worker not sought out legal help, he may have just settled for a low-ball offer from his employee right off the bat...however, the worker would not have been exercising all of his rights. An injury suffered at work that causes long-term (and sometimes life-long) problems is a major issue...and workers' compensation laws ensure that these long-term maladies are covered.

This worker was no longer able to work properly...costing him wages...his life forever altered...leading to higher medical bills. All of these factors MUST be considered when figuring out proper and rightful compensation.

If you have been hurt while at work, it's imperative you know your options and rights. An employer will try and do what they can to cut corners & costs...at your expense. No matter how valued of an employee you might be, they will try and make deals with you to accept less than what you're rightfully awarded.
