An Overview of Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Regardless of the specific job a person occupies, everyone is susceptible
to the risk of suffering an on-the-job injury. When workplace accidents
happen, injured workers are entitled to pursue compensation for their
medical expenses and up to two-thirds of their lost wages through their
employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Nearly all
types of injuries that can occur within the scope of a person’s occupation may be
covered under workers’ compensation, as long as an employee did
not suffer an injury through their own negligence.
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel
- Muscle/back strains from heavy lifting
- On-the-job car accidents
- Diseases from exposure to hazardous materials
- Construction accidents
- Office slip and fall accidents
All employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you
have a work-related injury or illness, you should file a workers’
comp claim as soon as possible. If your claim has been denied or underpaid
by a profit-driven workers’ compensation insurer, we can tenaciously
pursue the benefits you deserve. Read our blog entitled
