If you have been hurt at work in Arkansas, you are probably already experiencing some aspect of the workers’ compensation system. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters do not always fairly explain your rights under Arkansas law.
- If the doctor determines that you are unable to work as a result of your injury, you are entitled to temporary total disability benefits while you are unable to work recovering from surgery.
- If you are unhappy with the doctor the insurance company assigns you, then you may ask once for a change of physician.
- If you receive permanent injuries, you are entitled to an impairment rating from your doctor and permanent partial disability benefits from the insurance company.
- If you feel like you are not receiving the benefits you need, i.e., mileage reimbursement, prescription medication, recommended medical treatment or lost wages, contact the Law Office of Jason M. Hatfield, P.A. today.
