What is take-home toxic exposure?

Depending on where you work in Wisconsin and what your job entails, you may have to handle toxic chemicals and/or materials on a daily basis. While it is bad enough for you to face toxic exposure, it is even worse to think that your family might face it, too. As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, take-home toxic exposure remains a major problem in the United States.

Workers might be at disadvantage when injured

There are a few things that people in Wisconsin should be able to count on when they take a new job. One of these is that they will be paid for the time they work and a second is that they should be able to work in an environment free of discrimination or harassment. All workers should also be able to trust that they will be appropriately compensated if they are injured or become ill on the job. This is what the system of workers' compensation is all about.

Can you reopen your Wisconsin workers' comp case?

It is not uncommon for injuries to become more troublesome with time, especially when the injuries are more severe in nature. However, while most people must live with and accommodate the discomfort, parties who sustained their injuries in the workplace may be able to recover benefits via workers' compensation. Those individuals must have already filed a claim and received benefits for the same injuries that continue to ail them. To do so, they must first reopen their Wisconsin workers' compensation case.

Coverage by state workers' compensation

Most people employed in Wisconsin are covered under the state's workers' compensation program. This provides benefits to pay for medical care and lost wages if you are injured on the job. Knowing the parameters of what is considered "on the job" is important in the event that you need to seek these benefits. 

Workers' compensation dispute continues nine years

When a person is injured on the job in Wisconsin, they should be able to trust that the system of workers' compensation will be there to help them. For many people, this can and does happen. However, for other persons, receiving the benefits and assistance they need can be an ongoing challenge. Such has been the case for one woman who had worked for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The dangers of popcorn lung

Wisconsin residents who work in large factories are exposed to danger constantly. They may end up dealing with occupational health hazards that can lead to long-term pain, injuries, issues like spinal disc degeneration, or chronic work-related illnesses. One such ailment is called "popcorn lung", and its consequences can easily impact the sufferer's daily life.

Does workers' comp cover retraining?

If your workplace injuries prevent you from returning to your position, you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation services provided through Wisconsin’s workers' compensation program. According to the Dept. of Workforce Development, services can include retraining or help to find a suitable replacement job if you meet eligibility requirements and are not already receiving such services under another agreement.

Understanding Wisconsin lost wages claims

At the Paul M. Erspamer Law Offices, SC, in Wisconsin, we understand the financial difficulties you face when you get hurt on the job and cannot go back to work until you heal. We also know that even though one of the purposes of Wisconsin’s no-fault workers’ compensation system is to provide you with compensation for your lost wages while you are off work, insurance companies do not always pay you what and when they should.

Workers' compensation, explained

Most Wisconsin employees are familiar with safety rules in their place of work. While the chances of experiencing an accident on the job can depend on the industry itself, there are many gray areas that can make the process that follows challenging. Because such accidents can occur when one least expects them, it is important to remain aware of not only workplace rules, but state laws surrounding workers' compensation.
