Am I Eligible for Workers' Compensation?

Injured at work? Our Topeka workers’ compensation lawyer is here to help. All employers have to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. There are some basic requirements that determine whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation, which are included below.

  1. You must be an employee to be eligible for workers' compensation.
    1. It is important to note that workers’ compensation benefits do not only apply to full-time employees; seasonal and part-time employees are also eligible. However, workers’ compensation does not extend to consultants, freelancers, or independent contractors.
