Workers’ compensation claims are designed to protect you when you’re hurt at work. As an employee, you have the right to claim workers’ compensation benefits. Also, you have the right to other benefits like health insurance or unemployment. If you have been injured on the job, you should immediately seek medical treatment and advise your doctor how you were injured.
The stress of recovering from your job accident or job injury can be worsened when you have to worry about getting enough benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages.
After what is usually an endless amount of delay, an injured worker might receive a notice denying him or her benefits. In these circumstances, an injured employee may benefit from hiring legal counsel. A workers’ compensation attorney may file a motion to compel the workers’ compensation insurance carrier to comply with the legal requirements of promptly admitting or denying the employee’s claim to benefits.
Workers’ Compensation Laws are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with the payment of medical bills and a weekly disability payment for those time periods an individual is disabled from employment or suffering a loss of earnings.
