My husband lost part of his left index finger at work yesterday. It is gone from the top joint up, so about 3/4 of an inch. A friend of a friend told him that workers comp will give him $30K without him doing anything. How true is this? Who should we contact to find out the details?
Right now the person in his office who handles this is out all week. I will get the information about workers comp from her, but I'm sure she doesn't know all the details about how something like this should work.
Should we consult with a lawyer? Do we sue for loss of use (he was a mechanic/electrican/plant manager) Just wait and see what happens? I hate just wait and see. I want to know what the policy is now!
Any one have any clue?
