Attorney John R. Jokela only represents injured workers in Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability cases. John fights for injured workers every day. This is all he does.
If you have been injured in a work related accident and live in the Stevens Point or Plover area, you may seek treatment with a doctor of your choice. Your employer doesn’t get to decide what doctor you see– you decide what doctor to see. Many injured workers in the Stevens Point and Plover area seek treatment with the doctors and medical professionals at the Klasinski Clinic and Ministry Health Care (Rice Medical Center and St. Michaels Hospital). If you have an injury to your neck, back, shoulder, hip, knee, foot, ankle, or elbow and need surgery, your surgical treatment and recovery charges are all supposed to be covered at 100% by the work comp insurance. Serious injuries and surgeries also usually mean time lost from work, mileage, prescriptions, and other claims. These are all coverable by workers comp insurance. If you have questions about your claim, or your workers compensation claim is being refused or denied, then you also have the right to contact a qualified workers compensation attorney. If you injure any part of your body and lose more than three days from work, you are then entitled to lost time benefits and back wages. You may also be entitled to other benefits for permanency, permanent disability from surgery or from the permanent affects of your injury (PPD), and many other benefits. Attorney John Jokela has been representing injured workers for 20 years, and proudly serves injured workers in the Stevens Point and Plover area from his office in Wausau, WI. If your claim is denied, then an aggressive lawyer can maximize your cash settlement by including all claims you are entitled to under the law. Call John Jokela at 715-845-9000 for a free consult.
