Workers’ Compensation for Postal Employees
Meet With Our Federal Compensation Lawyers for Guidance
At Aumiller Lomax, our federal compensation lawyers are experienced in dealing with the kinds of challenges that face injured postal employees. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is an independant government authorized agency and one of the largest single civilian employers in the U.S. The USPS employs over half a million people. Unfortunately, given the rigorous nature of the physical requirements associated with employment at the USPS there are ample opportunities for injury, such as lifting injuries, repetitive use injuries, falls and, yes, even the occasional dog bite, to name a few. Postal employees are coved by a law called the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) and can benefit from various types of benefits.
Benefits you may be able to receive as a postal employee include:
- Wage compensation for time lost due to a work related injury
- Medical expenses related to your work injury
- In some, but not all, cases permanent injury awards called schedule awards
The FECA statute is administered by the United States Department of Labor, Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). If you have been injured on the job, we can help you to receive the compensation and benefits to which you are entitled. Call us now at (856) 751-0440 to receive help from our skilled lawyers.
