After suffering a serious injury or illness at your workplace, it can be difficult to return to normal activities. Working again may be next to impossible, and enjoying life the way you did before the injury may no longer be in the cards. That’s why workers’ compensation benefits are crucial for employees who are injured or become ill while on the job. The legal team at the Murphy Law Firm has helped numerous injured workers throughout the state of Montana receive their rightful workers’ comp benefits.
Attorney Thomas J. Murphy and his team would like to focus on one particular client who suffered an on-the-job injury that affected his life. His name is Victor Reents. After learning about Victor’s story, we encourage you to contact our Great Falls, MT law firm to find out how we can help you.
About Victor’s Case
In 1999, Vitor Reents sustained serious injuries during a workplace accident. This accident was so severe that it required several surgeries to address the injuries Victor suffered.
Given the nature and extent of his injuries, Victor could not return to work. There were disputes over how much workers’ compensation Victor would qualify for, and what his benefits would cover.
How Our Attorneys Helped Victor
The attorneys at the Murphy Law Firm helped Victor settle his workers’ compensation indemnity claim on a total disability basis. This provides wage support for Victor and also covers his continuing medical expenses stemming from his decades-old work injury.
To this day, our attorneys continue to assist Victor receive his necessary medical treatment coverage and benefits through workers’ compensation, without Victor incurring any additional fees.
Why Workers’ Compensation Benefits Matter
When injured on the job, your primary source of income is cut off. People want to work, but the circumstances of their injury may make this desire to earn an honest living difficult if not impossible. Workers’ compensation offers wage support until a person can return to their job. In cases where a return to employment is not possible, the injured worker may claim disability to assist with medical care, physical rehabilitation, and other services to help get the worker back on their feet.
Ultimately, workers’ compensation benefits help honest workers maintain some level of dignity after they’ve been harmed in an accident. These benefits are sometimes denied to workers, which is when seeking legal help is crucial. An attorney can fight for you and your household to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
