According to a recent 2014 survey by Summit Pharmacy, Inc., 37% of Americans believe that individuals who claim workers comp don't want to work and are using it as an excuse, and 35% of Americans agreed with the statement that "you need a PhD to complete all the necessary paperwork associated with a workers compensation claim.” These statistics speak volumes to the nationwide misunderstanding of workers compensation and individuals who are forced to claim it due to injury obtained on the job or as a result of their work. Although our workers compensation attorneys won’t be able to change the mindset of almost 2 out of 5 Americans, we acknowledge what you’re going through as it’s something that deserves an experienced attorney’s attention and expertise.
If you've been injured on the job or as a result of the work that you do, you know that fighting for your workers compensation can be a daunting, yet necessary, task. Rather than allowing the stigma of workers compensation to get in the way of what you rightfully deserve, it's important that you take the steps necessary to be granted your benefits. It can already be a stressful time when you’ve suffered an injury at work, so the last thing you should have to worry about is the misconceptions of coworkers, insurance companies, and others.
