When you’re on the job, accidents can happen that could affect your ability to work. If you are injured on a job, it’s crucial that you report your injury to a supervisor immediately to eliminate the risk of delay in payment of workers compensation benefits. Waiting too long could result in employers avoiding payment of workers compensation all together.

Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs workers compensation attorneys have years of experience in workers compensation cases throughout the state of Wisconsin, and we are ready to fight for you. From medical bills and medication expenses to mileage reimbursement for travel to treatments, we are dedicated to helping get what you deserve from your employer.

Under Wisconsin Law, People Injured on the Job May Be Entitled to:
- Payment of all medical bills related to treatment of work injury
- Payment for medication expenses
- Payment of temporary disability benefits for the time you are unable to work. While you are recovering from your injuries, temporary disability benefits will amount to approximately 2/3 of your normal wage
- Temporary partial disability benefits for any period when you can go back to work but not on a full-time basis. These are a proportionate percentage of the temporary disability benefit
- Reimbursement for your mileage to and from treatment appointments
- Compensation, per the formula set out in the Wisconsin Administrative Code and Statutes, for any permanent disability identified by your doctor
