What is Workers’ Compensation?
When you are injured due to and during the course of your employment, workers’ compensation laws mandate that you are owed compensation for your injuries. Each state’s workers’ compensation law protects employees who have been injured on the job or contracted a work-related illness. Under these laws, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage to each employee. The coverage may cover lost time from work, medical bills, and resulting permanent disabilities.
Often, injured workers are worried about their job security after filing a workers’ compensation claim. Our legal team understands your concerns, which is why we seek to ensure your workers’ compensation case is handled promptly while fighting to make sure you receive maximum damages for your injuries.
Some common types of workers’ compensation injuries include but are not limited to:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Injuries from lifting heavy equipment
- Injuries from defective machinery
- Injuries from fires or explosions
- Illnesses due to an unhealthy work environment
What Kind of Benefits Are Available for Workers’ Comp?
- Disability | If you are unable to return to work because of your injury – either temporarily or permanently – you are entitled to disability benefits. The amount of disability payments you receive depends on the severity of your injury, how much time you missed, and what state you live in.
- Medical expenses | Workers’ compensation should pay for all the medical bills you receive from your workplace injury. This includes ER visits, rehabilitation, and transportation costs. Depending on your states’ laws, employees are either free to choose their own doctor, or must see an employee-chosen doctor.
- Missed work benefits | Normally, workers may receive a little more than 66% of your weekly wage while you miss work to recover.
- Death benefits | The surviving family of someone killed on-the-job may receive payments for burial expenses, along with an additional lump-sum payment.
