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.
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 I’ve Been Injured at Work! What Now? for more information regarding what steps you need to take immediately following a workplace injury.
