I got hurt at work, but my employer will not pay my medical bills and has not paid me any compensation. What can I do and what are my rights?
This really depends on the reasons for your employer’s refusal to honor your workers compensation claim. Sometimes, it is simply because the facts of your injury do not fit the definition of a compensable claim. Sometimes, it is because the employer is reluctant to report the claim to their compensation carrier. Other times, it may be because your employer has failed to carry workers compensation insurance, or may not be required to carry workers compensation insurance. We would be happy to discuss with you the facts of your claim to determine whether or not your employer has a legitimate reason for not processing your claim. If it appears that they do not have a legitimate reason to move forward with your claim, we can take steps on your behalf to get things moving.
