The United States Workers’ Compensation Act establishes the benefits to which workers are entitled; among these is work disability. Most workers are protected by this system and have the right to monetary benefits if they have a viable case. These are some examples of the many successful cases Grupo MedLegal has represented across the country:
Trenton, New Jersey: After doing custodial work for two years in a factory, an employee developed significant discomfort in her right knee and mid-section since she was required to carry heavy objects. She reported her issues and was sent to the doctor, who ordered job restrictions; however, her employers ignored the medical recommendations and obligated her to continue performing her usual work.
New York, New York: On October 24, while working, a construction employee suffered severe injuries when a chunk of cement fell on his face, leaving him in a coma. After that, he didn’t receive a single payment from his employer, despite the fact that he remained hospitalized.
Los Angeles, California: On November 13, a construction worker fell 7 feet when he slipped on oil, and fractured his right leg. Although he reported the accident, he did not receive any type of payment from his employer.
Chicago, Illinois: On November 12, when lifting a heavy pallet without help from a co-worker, an employee injured his chest muscles from the strain. He reported his accident and was taken to the doctor, who gave work restrictions; however, his employer ignored the recommendations and forced him to continue with his regular work.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: After working arduously for 10 months as a packer, an employee injured her lower back. She reported her physical pain, but instead of receiving medical treatment was sent home to rest, without receiving wages.
