Should I retain an attorney?
Lawyers are trained legal professionals who can explain the laws to you; help you evaluate your options; negotiate or mediate conflicts with other people; prepare letters, court forms or other legal documents for you; and represent you in court.
An injured worker is entitled to all reasonably necessary medical treatment to cure him/her from the affects of any and all work related injuries. The obligation of the employer to provide needed medical treatment arises when the injury is properly reported to the employer.
Temporary Total Disability Benefits
If medically certified, the injured worker is entitled to Temporary Total Disability Benefits payable at the legal rate, bi-weekly, which is dependent on the average weekly earnings on the date of your injury. In computing your average gross weekly earnings, the amount you earn from a second or third job can be considered in determining your temporary disability rate.
