WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ATTORNEYS

If you or someone you know was involved in an accident at work, whether it's a construction site accident, fall down accident, motor vehicle accident, or any work related injury YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS!
If you or someone you know suffers from any injury or illness attributed to the job; whether it’s exposure to chemicals, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, failed back syndrome, stress and/or depression YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS!
If you are injured on the job, attorneys at the Law Firm of Shabazz & Associates can help you recover compensation for your injuries. Your employer may be responsible for paying certain benefits regardless of fault. Your employer may have to provide you with the following benefits:
Medical Benefits
Attorneys at the Law Firm will fight for your employer to pay all necessary and reasonable medical treatment, prescriptions and hospitalization services related to the work injury so that you are not responsible for incurring medical bills and expensive co-pays and deductible.

Temporary Total Disability Benefits

If you are disabled for a period of more than seven days, we can help you receive disability compensation while you are out of work. Generally, injured employees may be eligible to receive temporary total benefits at a rate of 70% their average weekly wage. These benefits are provided during the period when an employee is unable to work and is under active medical care, which will allow you to focus on healing from your injuries and not accumulating debt.
   
Permanent Partial Benefits

In many work related injuries, the employee may never fully recover from the injury. In those cases, attorneys at the firm will assist you in obtaining continued benefits for your injuries. These benefits can include additional payment and/or medical treatment.

Permanent Total Benefits

Sometimes a significant work injury or illness prevents a worker from ever returning to any type of gainful employment. In those instances attorneys will fight for you to receive weekly disability benefits and medical treatment for as long as you are out of work. These weekly benefits are provided initially for a period of 450 weeks. These benefits continue beyond the initial 450 weeks provided that the injured worker is able to show that he or she remains unable to earn wages.

Death Benefits

In unfortunate circumstances where an employee dies because of a work related injury or illness we will fight for his/her dependents to receive death benefits. This may include a surviving spouse and/or children of the deceased.
The employer may also be responsible to pay up to $3,500 in funeral expenses for a job-related death.
So, if you are injured on the job call the Law Firm of Shabazz & Associates immediately for a free consultation. Don’t wait and lose out on the benefits that you are entitled to receive. Call us now and we will fight for you to receive everything you are entitled to by law.
