What Are Workers’ Comp Benefits?
Workers’ Compensation benefits are provided to individuals who have sustained work-related injuries. Benefits including financial payments and/or medical care are provided by the employer’s insurance carrier. Submitting a claim requires patience and strict timelines to qualify for workers compensation benefits. However, our experienced staff will be there every step of the way to get the money you and your family deserves.
Who Qualifies for Workers’ Comp?
Not every injury qualifies. Only those disabilities that are related to an accidental injury in the course of employment are eligible for compensation.
Here are some injuries that may qualify you for benefits:
- Repetitive motion or overuse injuries
- Occupational Illnesses
- Hearing or Vision Loss
- Accidental injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Injuries to extremities
- Head injuries or Traumatic Brain Injuries
Who’s At Fault?
If the Workers’ Compensation Board finds that you have a compensable injury, you are entitled to lost wages payments, as well as, Workers’ Compensation medical coverage pursuant to Medical Treatment Guidelines.
Workers’ Compensation is a “no fault” benefit. That means the amount a person receives is not decreased by his/her carelessness nor increased if it is the employers fault.
