Every occupation carries some risk of injury, whether from an accident on the job, the strain of repetitive motions, or occupational exposure to chemicals and other hazardous substances. Workers’ compensation insurance provides a valuable safety net for individuals who suffer work-related injuries or illness. This insurance coverage includes medical expenses and a portion of lost wages for employees who become injured or ill on the job as well as employee rehabilitation and death benefits.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are increasingly denying initial workers’ compensation requests. This denial can be the result of a variety of factors, including waiting too long to report an injury, having no witnesses, discrepancies between your accident report and medical records, and filing a claim after you were laid off.
If you were hurt while at work, you may be eligible for medical treatment, temporary disability payments, permanent disability payments, lump sum payments and other benefits. Because the liability related to workers’ compensation can be complex, retaining legal counsel as soon as possible is critical.
