Are you a teacher?
Have you been injured on the job?
Are you worried about the spread of COVID-19 in schools?
You may not realize this, but some teachers are at greater risk for injury than others. Even with safety measures in place, teachers are exposed to potential health risks while at work.
Chemistry Teachers: Experiments can go haywire … that’s why they’re called experiments! Working with chemicals, hazardous materials, or gas burners takes a great deal of focus and trust between you and your students. If anything goes wrong, it could result in significant injury.
Gym Teachers: Slip and fall injuries are more likely for this type of teacher, they’re also at an increased risk for head injuries, strains and other possible injury.
All Teachers: If you have to use a ladder in your classroom for whatever reason, you could lose your balance and fall. If you teach in an older building, you could be exposed to things like asbestos and lead paint. Teaching in the fall? You could be exposed to COVID-19 if your school is forced to reopen.
There are a variety of benefits and settlements for injured or ill workers that include but are not limited to:
Medical benefits: The insurer will cover the costs for most medical treatment you need while you’re recovering from an on-the-job injury or illness.
Lost wages: The insurer should make up a portion of your lost wages in most cases.
Additionally, insurers may provide disability benefits for a workers’ compensation settlement if you have some type of permanent disability. Attorneys at our firm will also fight for your right to claim your settlement over a period of time, or in a lump-sum payment.
