Injuries at work can have long-term consequences, particularly if you work in construction, manufacturing, warehousing, or other professions that can prove dangerous. Worker’s compensation benefits cover expenses as you recover, and may be the lifeline you need to live with dignity and move forward with your life. At Murphy Law Firm, we have helped countless people in the Great Falls, MT area with their worker’s compensation issues. If benefits have been denied or withheld, our team can help you.
We’d like to share another testimonial from one of our clients. His name is Michael Neisinger, and his case should be a reminder why it’s so important to seek legal help when your worker’s compensation benefits have been denied. There are so many stories like Michael’s in the state of Montana, and that is why we are here to help.
About Michael’s Case
Michael was seriously injured at work in Colstrip, MT due to an unsafe working environment. During this incident, Michael suffered injuries to his leg and his lower back, both of which would require surgery. The insurance company agreed to pay for the leg surgery but said that the lower back surgery would not be covered.
How Our Attorneys Helped Michael
Michael was referred to Murphy Law Firm by another worker’s compensation attorney. The legal team at Murphy Law Firm secured interim wage loss benefits (TTD) for Michael, and took his case to trial to obtain coverage for the lower back surgery.
The case is still ongoing. At the moment, we are waiting for the court to decide on the matter and whether or not Michael should receive coverage for lower back surgery. We intend to fight alongside Michael every step of the way to make sure he receives the medical treatment he needs.
Why Work Injury Benefits Are So Crucial
Back injuries can severely limit your mobility and your overall ability to work. Back surgery can address problems following a severe back injury, but the cost of surgery may be exorbitant. If an on-the-job injury resulted in the back injury and the incident was not the fault of the employee, worker’s compensation benefits should cover surgical treatment of the on-the-job injury.
Simply put, workers should not have to cover their own medical expenses when the injury they sustained on the job should be covered by their employer’s worker’s compensation plan.
In Michael’s Own Words
Michael’s video testimonial speaks to the client-focused work we do at Murphy Law Firm. Each person who comes to us receives the help and attention they deserve. “We’ve just been extremely appreciative of everything they’ve done for us,” Michael said. He added, “I’ve heard from several people that Mr. Murphy is the best in the state.”
