We recently added an article to our library about a workers’ comp. case handled by our office.
Although every workers’ comp. case is different, providing an example of a workers’ compensation claim that I’ve handled may be helpful in illustrating how a claim can greatly assist someone after injury. One case that comes to mind is one in which a roof fell on a man, causing him serious injury and bringing about a great need for customization with objects in daily life. After the tragic accident, for example, the worker’s home couldn’t accommodate him, so we got the insurance company to pay for a new home for him with widened doors and a ramp for his wheelchair. The insurance company also provided transportation that would accommodate his situation, specifically a van with a lift and hand controls. He was also given a computer system that was custom-designed for him to operate. Overall, he was awarded a great amount from the insurance company to make his lifestyle easier and the best it could be. Thankfully, he shouldn’t have to worry about money for the rest of his life.
