Workers’ compensation was one of the first forms of social insurance in the United States. As a mean of protection for both employers and employees, all states, work with the federal government to provide injured workers with financial assistance after an on-the-job injury or illness.
The main objectives of workers’ compensation include:
HURT611 can refer you to an attorney who handles workers’ compensation claims, as well as other employment law cases including wage and hour claims. A workers’ compensation attorney will work with you and your insurance company to recover the payments to which you are entitled.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, report the injury as soon as possible. According to most state laws, your employer must be notified about the accident and/or job-related injury within 30 days of its occurrence. In addition, your employer must notify its insurance company and arrange for your medical care.
If your on-the-job injury results in a disability (whether permanent or temporary), you will receive either weekly or monthly benefits while your disability exists, or a lump-sum payment for your permanent impairment.
The amount of money you will receive for your workers’ compensation benefits will depend on how your injury is classified. Your doctor will rate your level of impairment, and determine if you will be impaired permanently or on a temporary basis. How you are rated will determine the types of benefits you will receive.
Dependent upon your injury, the following types of disability benefits may apply to your injury:
