What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a system designed to safeguard employees who have sustained injuries while carrying out their job responsibilities. Regardless of who is at fault – whether it is the employer, a co-worker, or the employee themselves – this system ensures that injured workers receive the necessary benefits.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?

To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, the injury must have occurred during the performance of job-related duties. The injured worker should promptly report the incident to their employer. Once the claim is submitted, the employer’s insurance company becomes responsible for providing benefits. These include:

  • Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD): This covers two-thirds of the average weekly wage while the worker is unable to work due to the injury.
  • Medical Expenses: Workers’ compensation covers 100% of the medical bills related to the work injury.
  • Compensation for Permanent Disability: If the injury results in permanent disability, workers’ compensation provides financial compensation to account for the permanency of the injury.

Common Types of Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can range from minor to severe. Some common types of workplace injuries include:

  • Construction Accidents
  • Scaffolding Injuries
  • Work Machinery Accidents
  • Work Travel Accidents
  • Workplace Hazard Injuries

We represent clients injured in a range of incidents and stand firm to help them seek the benefits that they deserve.
