Workers Compensation

Most companies must provide workers compensation insurance for their employees.  However, this does not mean that you will be treated fairly by their insurance adjusters or their hired medical professionals; you may not automatically get the medical treatments you require due to loopholes and work-arounds that insurance companies can use to avoid paying.  If you answer yes to any of the following questions, contact us today for a FREE consultation. We can help you receive the financial compensation you need.

Workers Compensation Attorney

Ideally, workers compensation claims are supposed to help reduce financial strain by providing you with the monetary replacement for wages and medical benefits that you may miss while losing work due to your injury.
Unfortunately, even valid workers compensation claims are sometimes denied. In these cases, you need an experienced, workers compensation attorney to help you with your case.

About Utah Workers Compensation

Utah operates under a no-fault workers compensation system. This means that claims do not take into account who is at fault before issuing a payment. Lawyers for your employer may try to use your actions at the time of the accident as a reason not to pay you, even though Utah is a no-fault state. This is one reason why you need an injury attorney experienced with Utah workers compensation law to help you with your case.

“Without the Utah Injury Law Alliance, who fought for my workers compensation benefits and continued medical treatments, my treatments would have been denied. LawCare, the Utah Injury Law Alliance, helped me out in a situation that was out of control and horrible to endure. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Denying Workers Compensation

Since workers compensation operates under a no-fault claim process in Utah, the following are a few reasons your claim can legally be denied:

You caused injury to yourself intentionally

You were under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the injury

In addition, if you did not follow the safety procedures of your company, your total worker’s compensation may be reduced. Your employer may try to argue that you did not follow safety procedures, even if you did. A workers compensation attorney may be needed to properly represent you.

Reporting Your Injury

When you visit a workers compensation attorney, the first question they will ask you is if you reported the injury promptly. In order to receive compensation, you need to make a prompt report to your employer. The employer will have up to a week to make a report to their workers compensation insurance provider. The insurance company has an additional two weeks to report to the Industrial Accident Division. You are legally entitled to receive copies of both of these reports.

Being Unable to Return to Work

Workers compensation claims are made with the belief that the employee will be able to return to work. If you are injured so badly that you cannot return to work, you may be eligible for disability compensation. These claims may require lengthy battles and the experience of a qualified workers compensation attorney.
