Getting a phone call from a relative regarding an arrest is jarring and scary. You may never have been involved with law enforcement or the criminal justice system. Your desire to help must be tempered with good decisions that won't aggravate the situation. You might already know you'll need to contact bail bonding companies, but expect one or more of the situations below.
It's easy to think that completing paperwork with a particular bail bond company is all that must be done.
Workers compensation provides injured workers with wage compensation and medical care until they are physically able to return to work. It is paid through their employer for physical or mental trauma that occurred from a specific incident rather than progressive deterioration.
Wage compensation is based upon the weekly wage of the worker at the time of injury and pays a tax-free percentage of pre-injury wages. Immediate and rehabilitative medical care are both provided at no cost upon approval of a claim.
