Millions of employees are injured at work each year and thousands of work accidents result in serious injuries and death. Employees who are injured at work are entitled to compensation for their injuries. In death cases, families may also be entitled to compensation.
The workers' compensation system is designed to ensure that injured workers receive medical and disability benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses, without regard to employees having to prove fault on anyone’s part in order to receive those benefits.
However, South Dakota’s workers’ compensation laws are complex and you need an attorney with experience and expertise in workers’ compensation claims. At Johnson Janklow Abdallah, LLP, our personal injury attorneys have the resources and knowledge required to identify and litigate all the available claims to help ensure that you receive optimum compensation and benefits to which you are entitled. We represent employees who have been injured on the job in claims for temporary and permanent disability and medical expenses against employers and their workers’ insurance compensation carrier.
If you have been injured at work, you should immediately given written notice of injury to your employer. South Dakota law requires written notice be provided within three (3) business days after the occurrence.
Immediately reporting the injury and filing a claim quickly helps ensure that your benefits will start promptly. Call us at 605-338-4304 and schedule a free consultation.
