The Workers’ Comp Lawyer Who Works for You

If you were injured in the course and scope of your employment and are unable to work as a result of a workplace injury, you deserve compensation.

Jones is the workers’ compensation lawyer who will make sure you get the proper recovery amount you deserve. Despite the fact that injured workers are entitled to these damages being awarded, many employers and their insurance companies will do what they can to ensure their costs are as low as possible. That’s why workers’ comp attorneys fight to get workers what they deserve.

What is workers' compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue their employer for the tort of negligence.

How does workers’ compensation work?

Essentially, injured employees are given a portion of their wages while off of work so they may get treatment. To qualify for workers’ comp you must be an employee of an employer who carries workers’ comp insurance and the injury or illness must be related to work. If you are injured on the job, you must make sure to meet the state deadline for reporting the injury and filing a claim for workers’ comp.
