If you suffer serious injuries or are disabled as a result of a workplace accident, the worker’s compensation program in your state is designed to protect you. Nearly all employers are responsible for paying for workers compensation insurance, which will compensate those injured on the job.
A wide variety of injuries and illnesses are covered under worker compensation programs ranging from back, shoulder and neck injuries, hearing damage, eye injuries and repetitive trauma injures to name a few.
Because workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance program, injured employees do not have to prove that an injury was someone else's fault to receive workers' comp benefits.
Each state has statutes, which govern the benefits available to you and set limits on amounts awarded. There are also rules setting time limits for filing workers comp claims.
Workers comp benefits available to you may include:
- Medical costs
- Replacement of lost wages
- Physical rehabilitation
- Temporary Disability
- Permanent Disability
- Death benefits for surviving dependents
When you are injured on the job or if your worker’s compensation claim has been denied, the experienced workers comp attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Popovich, P.C. can help protect your rights.
