All workers are exposed to risks and injuries at work. Each type of job comes with its own risks. Each year in the U.S., thousands of worker accidents are reported, whether temporary or permanent, partial or total. The most common types of injury are related to excessive exertion, falls, and pain from many years of labor. Some workers even become incapable of continuing to work. That’s where Grupo MedLegal comes into play and solves your problems.
Grupo MedLegal has more than thirty years of experience. We specialize in workers’ compensation and workplace injuries. Each year thousands of people report this type of injury, and we resolve their cases. No matter your immigration status and whether or not you have the proper documents, by law all workers have the right to be protected and receive benefits if they are injured. Ours is the most highly recognized firm among the Latino community in the United States. If you have a problem as a worker, we are here for you. If you work in construction, landscaping, cleaning services, manufacturing, or agriculture, we are your best option. Our attorneys are specialists in winning workplace injury cases. Our offices are located in California; Illinois; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; New York; New Jersey; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Atlanta, Georgia; and Florida.
It doesn’t matter whether the person affected has a minor annoyance or a serious injury, or even if the worker is not able to get out of bed due to intense pain. Grupo MedLegal will offer you not only an attorney to work persuasively in your defense, but also high-quality medical care, prescriptions, doctor visits, and anything else having to do with your injury. Many times, employers take advantage of workers who do not have the proper immigration documents, who are not well informed, or who are afraid. You should know that by law, you will receive benefits if you have been injured while working for a company. You even have the right to make a claim for any medical care or damages. You have a right to claim anything related to your injury until you have fully recovered.
Speaking of rights and benefits which the worker can receive, any medical attention of your choosing will be paid for by your employer’s insurance company by law; they are obligated to do so in the United States.
Some of the more common workplace injures include dangerous falls, falls from ladders or scaffolding, various types of factures, muscle strains, pain, and back or spine injuries. We could add all sorts of cuts, amputations, and lacerations; burns; and injures from using dangerous machinery or extremely hot substances. The worker could even have pain caused by constant work or repetitive motion. This type of injury can take the form of herniated discs, neck and lower back pain, swelling after being hit by an object, joint pain, tension, and general pain.
One of the biggest questions clients have is, “What happens if I have a relapse from a previous injury?” The important issue here is that you can receive workers’ compensation if your current employer allowed you to work in your condition upon beginning the job. So, there are no excuses; you have the right to receive the greatest financial compensation for expenses related to your injury. It’s important to act quickly after your injury since some states have restrictions, and you could lose your right to compensation if too much time has passed.
