Find Out If Settlement Is an Option for You

Settlement of workers compensation claims is possible, and our team of work accident lawyers here at Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co. can help you to determine if settlement is an option for you and your case. In doing so, some of the first things to understand are the types of claims that are covered by workers compensation. These include but are not limited to:

  • Injuries suffered from faulty furniture or physical property of the company, such as a broken chair
  • Injuries sustained while participating in an activity that is hosted by the company, such as a holiday party
  • A medical condition that existed before you began work that has been substantially aggravated by your working conditions
  • Diseases that developed after prolonged exposure to dangerous substances
  • Injuries directly related to excessive physical or emotional stress

Not All Injuries Are Covered

We can help you to determine whether or not your injury or illness is likely to result in settlement of a workers compensation claim, but not all injuries will fall into this category. Here are some examples for your reference of injuries that are not covered:

  • Injuries occurring off of company property during your personal time, such as on your lunch hour
  • Injuries incurred from behavior that could be considered “wild horsing around”
  • Injuries resulting from an employee’s state of intoxication
  • Purposeful self-inflicted injury
