Work-Related Personal Injury Cases

Hi, I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz,

I want to tell you a quick story about a work-related personal injury case that everyone should know about, even if you have not had a work-related injury. I was walking through the mall shopping with my family one weekend and ran into a friend. She was wearing a tank top and had a great big scar on her shoulder. She told me that she was injured on the job. I said to her, “have you gone to a lawyer to find out about your legal rights?” She told me that she did not think she needed to, because she was doing very well with the workers’ compensation insurance adjuster.

The workers’ compensation insurance company was paying her lost wages. The insurance company was paying her medical bills and they were not giving her any trouble, so there was no need to go to an attorney. I said, that is really the biggest mistake that you can make in a workers’ compensation case, because the insurance adjuster may be paying your medical bills. The insurance adjuster might be covering your lost wages while you are out after the surgery, but they are not telling you what you are missing.

They are not there to tell you what you have and you have a claim for disfigurement. If you have a surgery scar that I can see walking through the mall, that is a claim for disfigurement for potentially thousands and thousands of dollars. There are other claims that they are not going to tell you about. They are not going to volunteer the information, so go to a lawyer in the jurisdiction, the state and County where your work injury happened and so she did. I found out today that the attorney was successful in getting her compensation for that scarring, for that disfigurement claim, and it was thousands of dollars. I told her I like Coors Light beer, send me a six-pack, you can thank me that way!

My point to you is, if you are watching this video, if you have had a work-related injury or a friend or family member has had a work-related injury, even if you are in a situation where the insurance company seems to be doing the right thing, they are not telling you what you are missing. Unless you go to an attorney that handles these types of claims, in the jurisdiction where the accident happened, you are not going to find out what you are missing. I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz & I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Hopefully you can help someone out there in the community. If you have questions for me send me an email below. Thanks for watching.
