What You Need to Know: Older Workers and Workplace Injuries

Before you think about taking off your hardhat or safety goggles, you should know older workers who were injured at work need more time away from work to recover. At 65 years and older, workers need 60% more time off work to recover from an injury, or about 14 days. That’s a long time to be missing a paycheck!

When you hire the experienced lawyers of Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC to represent you, you’ll be getting the quality representation and compassion you deserve. When you’re injured, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your family will be taken care of while you’re not working.
