Most businesses in Rhode Island with one or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. What is workers' compensation? In the event of an injury at the workplace, you are entitled to an insurance claim that covers medical expenses and time off work. Unfortunately, claiming your rightful benefits is not always easy. Sometimes employers refuse to submit a claim or the insurance company unfairly denies benefits. You may even be pressured to accept a settlement for far less than what your claim is actually worth.

We Work With A Vast Network of Workplace Injury Professionals

Many factors need to be considered when determining the true value of your workers’ comp claim. One of the key things to keep in mind is that you need to think of more than your immediate medical expenses. A chronic illness or injury requires long-term care, which means your compensation will need to be adjusted based on your future estimated medical bills. In order to determine this, we routinely work with highly respected physicians, neurosurgeons, orthopedists, neurologists, audiologists, chiropractors, radiologists, podiatrists, and therapists.

At Audette, Audette & Violette, we handle matters involving:

In addition to medical professionals, our lawyers may also call on engineers, accident scene re-constructionists, economists, and vocational rehabilitation professionals to help us with proving liability and calculating the total value of medical care and lost wages.

I Have a Work Injury, But I Am Still Able to Work

If you were injured in the workplace, but are still able to work, you are still entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

Examples of nonwork-ending injuries are:

  • Broken bones
  • Torn tendons or ligaments
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring

Our providence workers' comp lawyers can help you determine if you have a case and assist you with the next steps of the workers' compensation process in Rhode Island.

What if I Am Injured During A Work Break?

If you are injured while on break at work, you may be eligible for workers' compensation. In Rhode Island, employees are allowed to collect workers' comp if they suffer injuries "in the course of employment". Because this statement is broad, if the case can show that there is a link between employment and injury, the victim may be able to get workers' compensation for lost wages or medical costs.

Other ways that an employee may receive workers' comp:

  • Suffering an injury while on the employer's premises -- an injury on a lunch break may be work-related if it happens in a break room
  • Suffering an injury in close proximity to the job site -- you may receive benefits if you were injured while arriving to your shift or after immediately leaving after your shift
  • Suffering an injury at an event that is sponsored by your employer

If you were injured at your workplace or during a work-related event, reach out to the Rhode Island workers' compensation attorneys at Audette, Audette & Violette, LLC. We'll help you throughout your workers' comp case to make sure that you are supported during this process.
