Wisconsinites are known for many things: cheese, beer, devoted sports fans (Go Packers!), beautiful natural resources, temperamental weather, fish frys, and above all — its hard working people.
It’s important that Wisconsin’s hard workers are protected. Whether you work in a small machine shop with under 20 employees or for a large multi-million dollar corporation, the law requires employers to provide employees with a safe work environment. Even when appropriate safety measures and precautions have been taken, however, it’s possible for an employee to get injured on the job.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies deny workers’ compensation claims. They may question how a person initially reported the work injury, dispute whether the injury was work-related, or reject a claim based on minor technicalities, such as incomplete paperwork.
