You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, but your employer or their insurance carrier may attempt to limit or deny your claim.

Fillmore Spencer LLC’s workers’ compensation attorneys in Provo help you obtain the benefits you need to treat your workplace injuries and compensate you for future full or partial disability that will affect your livelihood.  The worker’s compensation system was designed to make it easier for employees to get benefits from their employers when they are hurt on the job, but it is rarely as simple as it seems.  Every injury, employee, employer, medical provider, and insurance company is different.  It is not unusual for all benefits to be denied, some paid while others are denied, or for the insurance company to try to return you to work prematurely.

Don't Go It Alone

What workers’ compensation benefits cover

Workers’ compensation benefits can cover more than your current and future medical expenses. An award may also cover:

  • Temporary total disability: If an injury keeps you temporarily out of work, depending on your wage, you are entitled to two-thirds of your average weekly salary, up to the average weekly wage in Utah, until you are able to work again.
  • Temporary partial disability: If your injury allows you to work on a limited basis, temporary partial disability payments can help make up the difference between what you are able to earn and two-thirds of your average weekly salary.
  • Permanent total disability: Permanent total disability is paid when an injury prevents a worker from engaging in work activity for the rest of his or her life.
  • Permanent partial disability: If your injuries are permanent, but you are still able to work on a limited basis, you may be eligible for permanent partial disability benefits.
  • Medical care: All medical care that is related to your workplace injury should be covered by workers’ compensation for the entirety of your lifetime.
  • Mileage: All mileage for doctor visits related to your workplace injury should be reimbursed by the insurance company.

At Fillmore Spencer LLC in Provo, workers’ compensation clients are not charged attorney fees unless we win an award beyond your basic medical expenses.
