What is Workers Compensation?

Workers compensation is insurance provided by a company that provides medical benefits and compensation to employees that have become injured or fallen ill on the job. Work related injuries and illnesses include, but are not limited to: broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, lacerations, visual and hearing loss, and exposure to harsh chemicals leading to asthma, lung cancer, asbestosis, etc.

You, as an employee, are entitled to compensation of lost wages due to injury/illness, and the reimbursement of medical bills for your work-related ailment. The amount of money distributed is not affected by an employee’s alleged carelessness as a cause for injury. Most importantly, a workers compensation case can be made without proving negligence or fault for said accident. In order to obtain the proper care and compensation you rightfully deserve, it is important to place your claim in the hands of an attorney who is experienced in the field of worker’s compensation.

Injuries may prevent you from being able to work for just a limited amount of time, or may evolve into a disability that permanently lands you out of work. Not uncommon, workers compensation benefits may not fully compensate all expenses suffered from an employee’s work-related ailment, thus rendering an experienced workers compensation lawyer crucial. Do not allow yourself to be taken advantage of. Rest assured that you will be rewarded the proper amount of money to cover all expenses, as well as a possible lump sum settlement.
