Everything You Need to Know About Workers Compensation and How it Works

Worker's Compensation is designed to help you get the care you need after you receive a work-related injury. The compensation you receive is used to pay your medical bills and cover your financial losses from missing work. Since your injuries are work-related, your employer is financially responsible for your care and can provide any funds you lost due to missing work.

Reporting Your Injury

It is essential that you report your injury as soon as it occurs. Document the accident by taking as many pictures as you can of the scene. Get statements from individuals who saw the accident happen. Make sure your employer has all of the information as well as any doctor’s reports whether it be from the emergency room or another physician.

Get the Medical Attention You Need

Get the proper medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. Don’t wait! Immediate medical attention will provide the most accurate record of your injuries. Your employer may require that you see a second doctor to get another opinion to affirm the original doctor’s findings. It’s essential that discuss your treatment options and understand your prognosis.

Hire an Attorney Who Specializes in Worker’s Compensation Cases

Your attorney will work with both you and your employer to determine what compensation is needed to cover your medical care and financial losses.
