About Lawyer Bob

When an employee is injured at work, they are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits from their employer's insurance company. In every workers' compensation claim, there are at least three parties, with three divergent interests: (i) the injured worker (ii) the employer, and (iii) the insurance company.

If injured at work, you must immediately report the injury to your supervisor and employer.  You absolutely must make sure your employer files a First Report of Injury form.  Of course, get appropriate medical care and keep your employer informed as to your injuries and ability to work.

Determining what injuries are covered in a workers’ compensation claim can be a complicated task. A compensable injury is a personal injury or occupational disease that arises out of your employment and occurs in the course of your employment. For example, traumatic injuries that occur on the job are covered. Injuries that result from repetitive minute trauma caused by the performance of job duties are also covered (these are referred to as Gillette injuries, named after the Gillette v. Harold, Inc. case in Minnesota). Pre-existing conditions that are substantially aggravated or accelerated by work activities are also covered. Occupational diseases are covered but must be peculiar to the employee's occupation and generally not an ordinary disease of life. Some injuries attributable to your employment are not covered. For instance, stress that causes a psychological disability, without any identifiable physical ailment, is generally not compensable. For a psychological/mental injury to be covered there must be either a physical stimulus that produces the mental injury or a mental stimulus that produces a physical injury.

An injured employee is entitled to receive benefits, including compensation for rehabilitation expenses, retraining expenses, lost wages, and payment of medical bills. If a death has occurred, then the decedent’s family is entitled to death benefits. You need an experienced attorney to fight the insurance companies – you need Bob Lange.

Insurance companies, with their large number of claims adjusters and their defense attorneys, will do everything they can to keep you from obtaining justice and reasonable compensation for your injuries. Adjusters and defense attorneys are hired to protect the insurance company’s pocketbook, not yours. Do not give them a statement. You can co-operate without giving a statement. You could make a mistake telling your side of the story. Get plenty of pictures as soon as possible. Pictures reveal what happened.
