Workers’ compensation insurance is a great system in theory. It’s a way for business owners to minimize their liability and ensure their workers are covered in the event of an on-the-job injury. Unfortunately, theory and reality don’t always align. How it actually works out for the accident victim, in our experience, is that worker’s compensation covers a fraction of the overall cost of their accident, leaving the injured worker and his or her family holding the bills.
That’s why calling a workers’ compensation attorney at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers is always the right first step following a workplace accident.
