WHAT IS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION?
Workers’ compensation—also known as workers’ comp and workman’s comp—is a national program designed to compensate American workers who have been hurt while on the job. For the last four decades, our Burg Simpson Wyoming office has fought hard to help injured Wyoming workers receive just compensation for injuries suffered on the job or during the course of their normal employment.
States began establishing workers’ compensation programs decades ago as a way to safeguard employers and employees alike when on-the-job accidents occur – as they inevitably do. Most of the time, Wyoming workers simply file a workers’ compensation claim after an accident at work leaves them seriously injured. But there is much more to it than that. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Burg Simpson Wyoming will work with you and guide you through the process.
If you have been hurt on the job, it is crucial that you reach out to the work-related injury lawyers at Burg Simpson Wyoming as quickly as possible. Do not make the mistake of trying to handle your claim on your own. Call us today at 307-527-7891 or fill out a Free Case Evaluation Form now to learn how we can help you.
WHAT IS YOUR CASE WORTH?
A variety of factors figure into any workers’ compensation case. Damages that can be secured include economic, non-economic, and even punitive damages – and the only way we can offer an accurate determination of your case is to examine it carefully.
It is also important to know that if we take your case, you pay nothing up front. We work with you on a contingency basis, which mean we do not get paid anything unless you do. Reach out to us as soon as possible by calling 307-527-7891 so we can make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Popular Workers’ Comp Myths
Workers’ compensation is much more complicated that it might seem. While workplace injuries – and fatalities – have been falling in Wyoming over the last several years, thousands of employees still get hurt on the job every year. So it is important to know what NOT to do if you have been hurt at work:
- Don’t have to report the injury. In Wyoming, you have 72 hours to report your injury to your employer. Failing to do so could jeopardized you chances of getting compensation.
- Don’t tell your doctor everything. Report every aspect of the incident to your employer and everything about your injury to your medical provider.
- Don’t see your employer’s doctor. You have to see your employer’s designated medical provider unless it is a life-or-death emergency. Otherwise, you could get stuck with the bill.
- You can’t say no to treatment and/or surgery. Actually, that’s something you can say no to. You have every right to get a second opinion and even decline surgery without threatening your claim.
- You have to pay whatever the doctor tells you. This is not true either. At the time of your initial treatment, you should not be billed for anything.
