What Grey & Grey Will do for You
To receive workers’ compensation benefits, a worker must prove that they were involved in an accident while they were working and because of that work, the employer was notified that the accident caused or contributed to an injury. The legal definitions of “working” and “because of the work” are very broad, and protect workers when they are on, entering, or leaving the employer’s property, and sometimes when they are traveling. The employer must be notified within 30 days of the accident, unless a late notice is excused by the Workers’ Compensation Board. A separate claim must also be filed with the Workers’ Compensation Board within two years of the accident.
Occupational diseases are also covered by workers’ compensation. An occupational disease is a condition that develops over a period of time because of the type of work a person does.
Grey & Grey is dedicated to representing workers who are injured on the job.
- They will provide you with all the forms you need to file your claim, and they will file the claim for you after the paperwork is complete.
- The insurance company is not defenseless. It can and often will arrange examinations with medical consultants to obtain opinions about whether you are disabled or need medical treatment. After such an exam, you may be notified that your payments have been suspended, reduced, or that the insurance company is denying further medical treatment. If you let Grey & Grey know that this is happening, they will request a hearing for you.
- When the Compensation Board schedules a hearing in your case, Grey & Grey will appear on your behalf and present your claim to the Judge. You should also be present in case questions come up that they need you to answer.
- Not all problems can be resolved at a regular hearing. Sometimes a trial or deposition testimony is needed from you, the doctors, or other witnesses. If a trial is necessary, Grey & Grey will try your case to the best of their ability and take whatever testimony is needed to help you win your case.
- Grey & Grey wants to obtain the best possible result for you in your workers’ compensation claim. They will track your claim from beginning to end, explain your rights under the law and what is needed to win your case, and work with you to get the necessary documents or evidence. Their goal is for you to receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
