What do common injury costs include?
Workers may sustain any number of work-related injuries or injuries on-the-job that include paralysis, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, burns, back/neck trauma and bruises. When you have been injured on-the-job, you need legal counsel to protect you from predatory insurance adjusters and unscrupulous owners.
Often employers will immediately deny any form of liability, try to settle the matter under the workers’ compensation plan or offer a low settlement. While the settlement may be an appealing offer, often the amount offered does not cover lost wages, medical expenses and other bills.
Common injury costs include:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Follow-up appointments
- Surgical expenses
- Extended stay in hospital
