At Cortinez Law Firm we can assist with your filing for medical payments and/or disability benefits under Arkansas workers compensation laws. Work-comp benefits are intended to compensate employees who were injured on the job or became ill due to circumstances of his or her job.
When an employer has four or more (part-time or full-time) employees, the work-comp laws require them to carry workers' compensation insurance.
At Cortinez Law Firm we can provide a no-cost, no obligation consultation to review the details of your work accident, workers' compensation claim, or an insurance company's denial of work-comp benefits.
A worker who has been injured at work or while performing the duties associated with his or her job has certain rights. We believe these rights should be protected to the fullest extent, and that is why we handle workers' compensation claims for clients throughout the Central Arkansas area.
With our help, you can find out more about your right to medical care immediately after an accident or injury, what to do if your rights are violated by retaliation of some kind on the part of your employer, and what types of benefits you may be entitled to receive.
Workers' compensation laws offer you protection from wrongful termination or other practices by employers who attempt to punish workers for filing workers' comp claims. These laws also grant you the right to benefits for medical care and possibly much more. Make sure you involve a workman compensation lawyer who has the experience, knowledge, and resources to properly protect your rights.
When dealing with an injury following a work-related accident, it is in your best interests to consult with us to have your case carefully reviewed and submitted so as to provide you with all of the benefits you are entitled to.
Certain accidents may require careful documentation to determine what exactly occurred and what aspects of benefits apply to your injuries. It can also avoid a possible denial by the workers' compensation insurance company, or a restriction of medical benefits to fully treat your injury so that you can completely recover.
