Workers’ Compensation provides the support and medical benefits an employee needs after being injured on the job as the result of an accident or occupational disease. Each state design’s a system that they feel best compensates and protects employees who suffer a personal injury at work. Workers’ Compensation benefits cover both traumatic injuries (usually caused by a sudden event) and gradual injuries (caused by repetitive motion or stress). Almost every employer in Vermont secures coverage by purchasing insurance, as stated in the Workers’ Compensation laws.

How will my bills get paid?
Will I get the proper medical treatment?

An injured worker will not receive any Workers’ Compensation benefits until the insurance carrier or employer agrees that the injury or illness was in-fact, work-related. Should a dispute arise, a workers’ compensation judge decides the final outcome.  No money will be paid out beforehand unless one claims Disability benefits during that time. However, if disability benefits are collected, these will be deducted from the workers’ compensation benefits total, once an agreement is made.
