What Is Workers’ Compensation?

man needing workers' compensation lawyerWorkers’ compensation is an employee insurance program intended to provide benefits to employees that are injured at work. Normally, your employer’s insurance company will be accountable to pay for any lost wages, medical bills and in some instances, a lump sum settlement. You may also be entitled to other benefits, such as job retraining. The workers’ compensation system provides benefits for injured workers so long as the injury occurred while at work or performing duties for work.

Am I Eligible To Basic Benefits?

Basic benefits usually include lost wages, payment for medical expenses, disfigurement, job retraining and, in some cases, a lump sum settlement. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be entitled to one or more of these benefits. Read More.

Will I Receive a Lump Sum Settlement?

Can I Get Weekly Benefits For Lost Income?
