Only a civil lawsuit plus your reduced workers' comp benefits will pay for all of your injuries, medical bills and lost pay.
Politicians have slashed injured workers' benefits recently. Your benefits have been cut in half. A companion civil case against a third party that caused your injuries adds a fair, full and reasonable award.
Workers' comp payment to replace a worker's earnings, temporary disability, is strictly limited to 2/3′s of your salary and restricted in time so that you will go without, work hurt, or bankrupt. Lost pay in a civil suit is reasonable and not limited.
Medical benefits under Workers' comp are now reduced. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic care have been cut back and scrutinized. Vocational therapy, a standard damage in civil court, has been eliminated. The employer and insurance company select your doctor and limit care. Civil awards permit you to choose the best medical care and are based on what is medically reasonable and necessary for your recovery to make you and your family whole again.
