Benefits are added incentives given by companies and employers to coworkers that take many different forms. Examples of benefits include medical care coverage, disability pay, etc.
When your benefits are infringed upon or taken advantage of by your employer or other professionals, they may be liable to stand trial for benefits fraud, workers compensation fraud, or any other charge they are guilty of by denying your rights as an employee.
What Benefits Fall Under Workers Compensation? There are three major benefits that fall into the workers compensation category:
Medical Expense – this covers the cost for hospitals, physicians, medical treatment, etc.
Disability Pay – either temporary, or permanent. This will depend on the severity of the injury. The amount varies, but can be as high as one-half to two-thirds of your normal pay.
Vocational Rehabilitation – if you are unable to perform the usual duties of your occupation due to your injury, you may need to be re-trained so that you can enter into a new trade or business. Also, physical therapy may be needed to obtain your pre-existing physical strength.
If your employers conduct imposes on your physical well-being or restricts you from gaining your physical strength, he will be penalized and should be reported to deter such conduct in future situations. He could do so be neglecting to inquire on the origin of the accident, or by giving strict liability without inquiry into fault.
“Trust, confidence, and reliability were [the] major factors that impressed me most when I hired the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray to represent me. I was seriously injured at work and was treated very badly by my employer. I’ve gone through many hurdles and obstacles looking for the right attorney to satisfy my needs and expectations but nobody [seemed] to care about me. Some turned me down [while others] took advantage of me. [They] did not even care and appeared to be more interested in what they could get out of my case, thus, putting their [own] personal interest over mine.
I was hopeless and almost gave up, because my workers’ compensation claim was tied [in] with my discrimination/harassment civil lawsuit against my employer, [which] made the whole situation very complicated. However, it was not too late when I met Mr. Nehoray and his office manager, Alma Gavia, who gave me hope and courage. They patiently listened to me and spent time and effort with me. Mr. Nehoray took-on my case despite complications. He handled it with proper care and professionalism.
If you are looking for a combination of excellent legal representation and positive results, Bob Nehoray and his staff will take care of you. Finally, after consulting with many attorneys, I am glad I am in good hands. Don’t be desperate. Put aside your frustrations and be patient. Go and get a free consultation. Call the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray right away and get your rights protected.”
“Law Offices of Bob Nehoray… I will NEVER be able to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me; and it isn’t the amazing settlement that you got for me that I am most grateful for; it is how professional you and your entire office staff were. Everyone is SO nice [and] caring. They made me feel like a person and not just a ‘client.’ The fact that you were able to handle both my Personal Injury and my Workers’ Compensation cases at the same time was very important as well. Bob, you and Behnaz are the best of the best and you will forever have my appreciation and my HIGH recommendation! All the best to you and everyone at the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray.
