If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. Such benefits include medical care and/or cash to help employees with work-related injuries recover and assist their families in their time of need. If you have sustained a work-related injury, whether it be a traumatic experience or one caused by a repetitive motion or stress, be sure that you get the help you need to recover the benefits you deserve. Vermont Workers’ Compensation benefits are broken out into five basic categories:

  • Medical
  • Temporary Disability
  • Permanency
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Death Benefits

Filing a claim to the Vermont Workers’ Compensation & Safety Division involves a fairly complicated process with stringent deadlines and various forms. Don’t panic in wondering whether you’re getting the money you and your family rightfully deserve; call the Workers’ Compensation lawyers of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® to let us take care of this difficult process, and allow you to focus on recovery.

 

Be aware that no Workers’ Compensation benefits can be received until the employer or its insurance carrier decides the injury/illness was work-related, and a Workers’ Compensation judge must resolve any disputes. During this time, you may be entitled to receive Disability benefits. However, any and all disability benefits you receive during this time will be deducted from your Workers’ Compensation settlement, should you receive benefits.
