The type of injury you are facing could leave you with varying amounts of time that you are unable to work, and in most cases, employers will not necessarily cover extended leaves from your job. Some severe cases could leave you unable to work for months, sometimes even years. With your inability to generate income due to your injury, you could be left struggling to make ends meet.
When approved, disability benefits will begin to provide you with necessary income to assist you during your transition back into the workplace or help cover costly medical bills. Additionally, permanent disability will allow you to receive income in the event that you are unable to return to work.
If you are injured, or if you have questions and concerns regarding your wages and loss of income, do not hesitate to gain the representation of a trusted lawyer. Our team can assist with filing a claim, appealing a denied claim, and representing you in court.
