Most Americans spend at least 40 hours per week at work. In 2016, Wyoming was tied with North Dakota for highest workplace fatality rate. Thus, Wyoming Workers’ Compensation attorneys are consistently called upon to assist not only the families of those who lost their lives, but also those who have been injured while performing services for their employer. This presentation will walk you through a Workers’ Compensation case from beginning to end, discussing things such as the statute of limitations, the hearing bodies, discovery, the disclosure statement, the hearing, and getting paid.
