Your Employer’s Responsibilities In Case You Suffer Workplace Injury

Whether you are injured on the job or on company property, your employer will most likely be required to pay for at least a portion of your medical bills. The amount of their liability will be determined by several factors, including whether you were injured during your shift or after you clocked out and left. If you were injured on the property after hours, you may have to prove their liability.

Worker’s Compensation Coverage

Injuries that occur while you are “on the clock” are covered by your employee Workers’ compensation insurance. This policy is in place to help them absorb some of the financial responsibilities that result from paying your medical bills while you are off work. State law requires employers to have a Workers’ Compensation policy in place in case an employee is injured on the job.

Negligence or Intentional Harm

If you are injured in an accident that involved a piece of equipment that your company knew was defective or malfunctioning and made no effort to repair it, their liability may increase due to negligence. When a company knowingly refuses or simply doesn’t take care of a problem, they become liable if that problem results in an injury. In this case, it doesn’t matter whether the employee was on the clock or not.

Retaliation

Another responsibility of an employer is to treat each worker fairly. Companies aren’t allowed to retaliate in any way against an employee who suffers an injury and receives the compensation they deserve through a Workers’ Compensation claim.

At Gaylord & Nantais, our attorneys are ready to take your case and help you get the compensation you deserve. We will protect your rights so that you get the treatment and care you need.
