Workers' compensation claim can ease hardship after injury

Many Olympia residents spend most of their waking hours in their workplaces, which is why it might seem more of a home to them than their own residences. Colleagues seem like family members and bosses may seem like elderly relatives, which is why their changed demeanor after a workplace accident may seem confounding to an injured worker. It might also explain why injured employees may hesitate filing a workers' compensation claim, as is their right.

When someone is injured while performing duties related to their employment, it could turn their whole life upside down. When a primary breadwinner is no longer able to work because of a workplace injury and medical bills are piling up, it could overwhelm an entire family. If injured workers do not exercise their right to file a workers' compensation claim, then they may not be able to make ends meet.

Unfortunately, the superiors who once felt like family members may create issues when faced with an injured worker, and this may result in delayed workers' compensation benefits. An employer may also dispute the events that took place or an employee's status in the workplace to avoid paying money. This can make injured employees feel isolated and overwhelmed.
