I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into my case. When it comes to work comp cases I can clearly see you are a very good employee advocate. I believe you do this work, not just for the money, but for the satisfaction you receive when you have helped someone “win’ a case”. So again I say thank you.
I will definitely keep you in mind if I ever need legal representation in the future. I will also ‘highly’ recommend you to my acquaintances and friends if they are ever in need of legal assistance. Thanks again for a triumphant outcome of my case. — Dave, Blue Springs, MO
We don’t get paid unless and until you do!
Protect your rights. The insurance company has trained adjusters who have lawyers at their everyday disposal. You should have your own attorney.
In most cases, you will need qualified legal representation to maximize the value of your Workers Compensation claim.
Do I pay taxes on Workers Compensation benefits?
No. Workers Compensation benefits are totally exempt from both federal and state income taxes.
However, if your employer continues to pay your regular salary or wages and requires you to turn over your workers compensation benefits, you will be taxed on any amount your employer paid you in excess of your workers compensation benefits.
Also, if you are receiving social security benefits, the part of your workers compensation that reduces your social security benefits may be taxable on your tax return as social security benefits.
If you return to work after qualifying for workers’ compensation, salary payments you receive for performing light duties are taxable as wages.
If you are injured on the job, a Workers Compensation attorney can help you obtain a fair recovery for any permanent partial disability you have sustained. Without your own attorney, the process is one-sided, and the amount of your recovery will be driven by case managers, doctors and lawyers who all work for your employer (or their insurance company), with one goal: to pay out the least recovery possible!
The calculations for determining your total recovery are complicated and only as good as the various numbers used to make the calculation. That is why it is so important to have your own lawyer who has YOUR interest at heart and will make sure the system works FOR you by holding all the employer’s professionals to the letter of the law. A good Workers Compensation lawyer knows how to fight for your interest and will not leave you at the mercy of the system that is controlled by the employer’s team of professionals.
Attorney Paul E. Evans of BLUE SPRINGS LAW OFFICE LLC is available to answer your questions and guide you through the process in a professional and courteous manner and to help you obtain all of the benefits that you are entitled to from your job-related injury.
