WORKERS COMPENSATION FAQ’s

What is a worker’s compensation claim?

It is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence.

Which types of damages are compensable?

Compensation for economic loss (past and future), reimbursement or payment of medical expenses and benefits payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment.

What is the federal law?

In the United States, most employees who are injured on the job have an absolute right to medical care for any injury, and in many cases, monetary payments to compensate for resulting temporary or permanent disabilities. Most employers are required to subscribe to insurance for workers’ compensation, and an employer who does not may have financial penalties imposed.

Circumstances where I might need a workers compensation lawyer

Whether you need an attorney after you are injured and have a workers’ compensation claim depends on a number of factors, such as: Your severe injuries require surgery. Your Doctor does not believe you will recover to your pre-injury health. You are no longer able to work a regular job. You have a significant pre-existing condition. You dispute an adverse decision made by your employer, or your employer’s insurance company, or your state’s workers’ comp division regarding your workers’ compensation claim. You did not receive the correct benefits. Your employer has disputed a decision made by your state workers’ comp division.
