Workers’ Compensation is a program where employers pay into an account which will be accessed if and when an employee is injured while on the job. “On the job” means while at your place of business, but it also means while you are engaged in your course of employment, such as running an errand for your employer or other off-site job-related tasks. If you are injured while in the course of your employment, you are covered by Workers’ Compensation (sometimes also referred to as “Workman’s Compensation”).
After having a job-related accident, the injured person normally has a lot of questions and concerns. “Who will pay my monthly bills, if I am unable to work?” is one of the most pressing ones. If you are covered by Workers’ Compensation, your medical bills and a portion of your weekly wages may be paid. You may also receive a lump sum payment if your injury is permanent and/or affects your ability to work in the future.
The only way to know what your full benefit may be is to contact an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney. We understand the complex and often confusing process required to file a Workers’ Compensation claim. Attempting the process on your own could cost you a delay in your benefits and possibly a denial. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after the accident so that you can be fully informed as to your rights and possible benefits in the Workers’ Compensation process.
