What Is Workers Compensation?
Workers Compensation is insurance that employers are required to carry and provide to their employees in the case of an injury or illness that is related to their job. Often, this insurance coverage protects companies from being sued if an employee becomes injured or disabled.
Under the law, if you are injured, regardless of who is at fault, you are entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.

Legal Representation In Workers Compensation Cases
If you have been injured on the job, please do not hesitate to report your injuries to the appropriate people. This usually includes your immediate supervisor, the person in charge of human resources for your company, and the company’s insurance carrier. You must report your injury in writing, within a very short, predetermined amount of time after the accident to be able to qualify for workers compensation. Otherwise, you may be denied benefits.
If your company denies your reasonable claim, you need to retain the services of a knowledgeable Workers Compensation lawyer such as the ones at the Dick James Law firm immediately. A work-related injury is compensable in terms of:
- Payment of medical expenses
- Compensation for lost wages
- Possible benefits to loved ones if there was a death
A work related injury can cause you to miss a day or two of work, or it can be serious enough to cause permanent disability and even death. No matter how serious your case may be, you need to know your rights.
