On The Job Injury Attorneys in Albany OR
In Oregon, employees are protected by Worker’s Compensation Law if they become injured at work. A settlement for worker’s compensation benefits might cover medical bills and a portion of missed wages until an employee is able to return to work. However, receiving these benefits is not always simple or guaranteed. For instance, there are strict requirements and fixed time limits that, if not followed, will jeopardize your chances of having your claim approved endangering the benefits that you need and deserve.
