When your work-related injury has had a devastating impact on your life, being approved for workers’ compensation benefits can help you begin to rebuild your life after your injuries. But when your injuries are so severe that they will prevent you from ever being able to return to work in your previous position, your future may be left uncertain.
Fortunately, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider may be required to provide you with Rochester vocational rehabilitation benefits. Increase your chances of getting your claim approved when you contact Kemmitt, Sanford & Kramer at (877) 630-7338 for a free case review.
After everything you have been through, choosing the right attorney should not be as difficult as it can be. But with Kemmitt, Sanford & Kramer, you can expect:
Vocational rehabilitation benefits are not available to just anyone who has been injured in a work-related accident. In order for you to be eligible for vocational rehabilitation benefits, your injuries must be so catastrophic that they prohibit you from being able to continue in your line of work.
A good example could be a factory worker who needs to be able to lift up to fifty pounds for twelve-hour shifts. If you suffered a traumatic back injury that left you suffering from paralysis, you would no longer be able to return to work as a factory worker.
Instead, through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider, you may be able to seek Rochester vocational rehabilitation benefits. Here, you may be able to seek other career opportunities, job training, or return to school and obtain an education in another field all at the expense of the insurance company. You can find out how much your vocational rehabilitation benefits may amount to when you contact our office for your free consultation.
It is not uncommon for insurance companies to deny people the vocational rehabilitation benefits and other workers’ compensation benefits that they are entitled to. Insurance companies are known for some of their unscrupulous tactics in their attempt to avoid paying out on claimants’ cases.
Getting your claim approved for Rochester vocational rehabilitation benefits may be more challenging than you thought. With the help of your attorney, you may need to file an appeal if your initial claim for benefits is denied. By providing the insurance company with the appropriate medical documentation, physician recommendations, and other supporting evidence, you can do your part to strengthen your claim.
Rochester vocational rehabilitation benefits could be the perfect solution when your life has been turned upside down by a catastrophic work injury. Your life does not have to be over just because you suffered a severe on-the-job injury.
Your vocational rehabilitation benefits can provide you with the employment opportunities you need to take that control of your life. Schedule your free, no-risk consultation with Kemmitt, Sanford & Kramer when you call our office at (877) 630-7338 or complete our online contact form.
