While all jobs pose some degree of risk, most people don’t expect to be seriously injured at work. Unfortunately, workplace accidents and injuries happen all the time and when they do, you should be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. All too often, however, liable insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid paying out injured workers’ claims. This can leave individuals and families struggling to get back on their feet and move forward with their lives.
