After a serious accident on the job, you may be wondering how you’ll pay your medical bills. You may also be concerned about how you’ll be able to support yourself and your family if you’re forced to miss more time off from work. In most cases, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance will cover your medical bills and other expenses, but these benefits may not be as easy to obtain as they initially seem. If your workplace accident leaves you with a disability that takes months or even years to fully heal from, will your employer’s coverage compensate you fully?
Don’t leave your workers’ compensation claim up to chance. Hire a legal team with the knowledge, experience, and passion helping people just like you. We’re here to ensure that you get the benefits you deserve. You’ve worked hard and put in the time, sweat, and commitment to your employer. In your time of need, someone needs to make things right. For help with your claim, contact the El Paso workers’ compensation lawyers of The Benton Law Firm at (915) 320-8000 today.
Why you need a lawyer for your workers’ comp claim
If you were injured in a work-related accident, you deserve more than a “Get Well” card from your employer. Their worker’s compensation insurance should fully cover your medical bills and compensate you for a percentage of your lost wages. In some cases, however, your company or their insurance provider may deny or attempt to diminish your claim. It is a shame, but it happens to injured workers like you all the time. When this happens, you do not have to accept the denial. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can fight for you and will help you get the benefits you are owed.

Frequently Asked Questions
The legal process is complicated, and after serious injuries, there are often more questions than answers. The Benton Law Firm can clarify any questions or concerns you may have regarding your rights, so contact us today to schedule a free consultation by calling (915) 320-8000.
Should I still file for workers compensation if I plan on taking legal action?
Yes. Workers compensation is designed to assist injured workers through the recovery process, but it’s not always enough to make ends meet, nor is it fair. That’s why it’s important to understand all of your legal options moving forward. If the injury you sustained was caused intentionally or was the result of the negligent actions of a third party, then you may be entitled to seek additional financial compensation outside of workers comp.
Do I have to pay for all of my medical treatments?
No, you should not be forced to pay for the necessary medical attention after your accident. Your employer is responsible for covering authorized medical expenses resulting from work-related injuries, and you should submit a claim to your employer or your employer’s insurance company. If you accept treatment from an unauthorized provider, then you may not be able to seek reimbursement.
Can I be fired for filing a workers’ comp claim?
No, it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against injured workers who seek compensation and medical attention. You are also protected from wrongful termination after applying for workers compensation. If you do lose your job, you may be able to make a claim against the employer’s act of wrongful termination.
If you are unable to work after an accident on the job, do not hesitate to contact The Benton Law Firm immediately. By taking the time to reach out to our firm for assistance, you can protect yourself and your injury claim. The statute of limitations prevents you from filing a claim after a certain amount of time, so do not waste another moment.
