How Workers’ Compensation Works
When someone is hurt on the job or while working, their injuries were not caused by self-intoxication or recklessness, and the incident meets other qualifications, they can seek this compensation to cover medical costs and lost income, and family members can seek compensation for loss of life. The claim process typically involves:
- Reporting the injury to the employer within one month of the accident
- Seeking necessary medical attention
- Filing the workers’ compensation claim
- Creating a return-to-work plan
- The insurance company makes a settlement offer
- You receive a judgment
- You can choose to accept the payout
We can guide you through every step of your compensation claim to ensure that you receive your money as soon as possible and are also pursuing the maximum amount available to you.
