Cedar Rapids Short-Term Disability Lawyer
Most people realize that when they are injured on the job, they are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, many people do not know that if they cannot perform their job and must miss time at work, they are entitled to lost wages for the time they have missed. However, the process of being compensated for a short-term disability claim (or claim for temporary total disability) can be difficult, and may deter many people from filing the necessary claims.
If you have suffered an injury at work that has caused temporary total disability or a short-term disability, you should immediately contact the Cedar Rapids short-term disability lawyers at the Pete Leehey Law Firm, P.C. We will evaluate your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Why Hire a Short-Term Disability Lawyer?
Although the short-term (temporary total) disability filing process was not intended to be difficult, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that many employers and insurers are resistant to the notion of actually following through with a short-term disability claim. Your employer may attempt to pressure you to use paid time off, personal days, sick days, or even take unpaid time off rather than file a claim for short-term disability. If this occurs, you need the protection of an experienced short-term disability lawyer who can make sure that your rights are preserved.
When you file a short-term or temporary total disability claim, your employer and insurance company will both have lawyers on their side ready and willing to fight your claim. If you are injured at work and are considering filing for short-term disability, contact the Cedar Rapids short-term disability lawyer Pete Leehey today at (319) 294-4424.
