On the job injuries attorneys Salem
The purpose of Oregon’s Worker’s Compensation law is to keep employees protected in the event they experience an injury at work. When you file a claim, your workers’ compensation benefits should provide for payment of your medical treatment(s), and two-thirds of your salary until the time that you are able to return to work, regardless of when that is. However, it is important to understand that there are strict requirements and time limits for filing claims, and if you are denied the first time, you must file an appeal within 60 days, or loose your benefits entirely! In order to ensure that you are awarded the benefits you deserve in a timely fashion, the best course of action is to hire an experienced worker’s compensation attorney as soon as possible, because a “worker’s comp” claim can be very difficult – and sometimes impossible – to navigate alone. The benefits you are eligible to receive are contingent on your injuries. Some of the more common injuries that happen on-the-job are:
- Illnesses From Substances, Toxins and/or Chemicals
- Injuries to Upper body
- Machinery & Moving Vehicles
- Injuries to Lower Body
