You Could Receive Compensation For Your Medical Bills
If your illness requires you to undergo medical treatments, you could recover compensation. Our attorneys can help you determine which expenses you are eligible to recover. One of the largest losses for injured or ill people is usually the cost of medical treatment.
Medical bills could include the cost of the following:
- Diagnostic tests to determine the illness causing your symptoms
- Surgeries or other medical procedures
- Medications for pain management or to treat the illness
- Ongoing doctor’s visits
You could also seek compensation for future medical bills if you believe your illness will require further medical interventions. Our attorneys can help you gather the necessary evidence to prove you will require medical care in the future. We can also calculate the estimated costs of that care.
Note that you may also be eligible to claim up to 2/3rds of your wages while you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
You Could Recover Compensation For Your Other Losses
On top of medical bills, there are other losses you could endure because of your illness. Through a claim or lawsuit, you could recover compensation for those losses. Not every workers’ compensation case can also include a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Our attorneys will determine if this is a possibility for your chemical exposure injury.
Examples of losses personal injury cases could claim include:
- Lost income: If you had to miss work for treatments or can no longer work because of your illness, you could seek compensation for the income you lost. We can also fight for you to recover future lost income if you cannot return to work in the same capacity.
- Pain and suffering: If you deal with intense physical pain or emotional and mental distress, you can seek compensation for pain and suffering damages.
Our attorneys can help you identify which damages you sustained. We can then calculate their value, so you know how much compensation to seek in your case.
