If you have been injured on the job, or have an occupational
disease, you may have questions about Worker's Compensation. It can
be difficult to get the answers you need and to know what you
should do. At Fitzgerald & Bomier, we

at work. We understand that when you are off work, time is of
the essence. Contact us for free

are going through and we are here to help.
Worker's Compensation laws in Wisconsin entitle you to certain
benefits when you get injured. These benefits can include
payment of medical bills, benefits for lost wages,
permanent disability benefits and more. Your employer's
Worker's Compensation insurance company is responsible for paying
these benefits. However, many times your questions go unanswered.
With more than 35 years of legal experience helping injured
workers in Wisconsin, we are here to provide you with the legal
advice and representation necessary to make sure that you receive
all the Worker's Compensation benefits and medical expense coverage
to which you are entitled. Our consultations are
free and all fees are contingent on our office obtaining a

You should promptly seek medical treatment for your injury. Be
sure to tell your doctor how your injury occurred... BE
SPECIFIC! After you have received medical treatment, you
should notify your employer and tell them about any work
restrictions given to you by your doctor. Your employer is then
obligated to contact their Worker's Compensation insurance company
about your claim. The insurance company will then contact you
directly. If you do not receive contact from the insurance
carrier within a reasonable time period after your injury, there
may be a problem and you should consult with an attorney.
If some or all of your claim has been denied by the insurance
carrier or your employer, Wisconsin law requires that you be
notified in writing. The next step is to file an Application for
Hearing with the State of Wisconsin Workers Compensation Division.
Before filing the Hearing Application, you should consult with an
experienced Worker's Compensation attorney who devotes a
significant portion of their practice to handling Worker's
Compensation claims. At Fitzgerald & Bomier,
we provide the necessary guidance to help you with this process.
All consultations are free. You will need to keep accurate
information on the treatment recommendations and work restrictions
from your doctor, as well as the amount of short-term disability or
other benefits you receive while you recover, including any
unemployment benefits. It is also important to submit all medical
bills you receive to your group health insurance or other coverage
you may have for treatment expenses. They may be reimbursed at a
later date for any payments they make.
The amount and duration of benefits may vary depending on the
type and severity of your injury. Generally Worker's Compensation
pays, in addition to medical expenses, weekly temporary disability
benefits for each week or partial week of missed work. This benefit
is paid at 2/3rds of your average weekly wage or salary at the time
of your injury. If a permanent injury occurs, then a permanent
disability benefit is paid based on a formula outline in the State
law. Your doctor is involved in determining the extent of permanent
disability that may have occurred. You should feel free to discuss
that with your doctor at the time you are released from care. If
you are unable to continue your job because of a permanent injury,
there are additional benefits paid to you to retrain you for a new
job or compensate you for your loss of earning capacity. Finally,
for very serious injuries, further compensation is paid to those
individuals who can no longer work due to disabilities from the
work injury, or for death that may result after an injury.
Wisconsin's system of Worker's Compensation (Workman's Comp) is
compulsory, meaning that employers are required to provide Worker's
Compensation insurance for their employees. Worker's Compensation
insurance may be provided through a private insurance carrier, or
employers may self-insure. Waivers are not permitted.
