If you are injured while performing your work duties, or have injuries that are the result of work-related tasks at your place of employment, you are most likely eligible for workers' compensation. You may be eligible even if you have a pre-existing condition that is made worse by the work that you’re doing.
However, you must file a claim to receive workers' comp benefits — and that requires proving to a judge that your injury or illness was due to a workplace incident or exposure. But an employer can argue against your claim, and will often use their own experts to prevent a claim from succeeding. Let the experts at Feagans Law Group navigate the complexities of workers' compensation law, so that you can focus upon recovery. We’ll be able to help you make the best possible case to prove your claim.
