What can you expect after you file a workers' compensation claim?

If you're hurt on the job, it's a good idea to get in touch with your workers' compensation attorney. While you can make a claim on your own, it's always a good idea to have someone on your side who knows the laws in your state and how to make sure your claim is handled properly.

When you're hurt, you have a right to seek out medical treatment right away. This treatment might make the difference between a long recovery time and one where you're ready to get back to work in a few days or weeks. Getting the right diagnosis and help from the start will help you know what you need to do to go back to work or if it's impossible to return to work in the same capacity as in the past.

What are some benefits provided by workers' compensation?

Some benefits you can expect from workers' compensation include:

  • Wage replacement benefits
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death benefits
  • Medical treatment

Your workers' compensation carrier may also have other benefits they offer to you, which is why it's good to have your attorney review the documents associated with your claim.

What happens if your claim is rejected?

If your claim is rejected, you have a right to appeal it. Your attorney can help you appeal your claim's rejection through the insurance provider by submitting new documentation and evidence supporting your claim. If it is still denied, your attorney can also help you if you have to go to trial over your claim and your need to be compensated through work.
