What does workers’ compensation cover?

Workers' compensation is a system designed to provide medical benefits and financial assistance to workers who are injured on the job. It covers medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, partial lost wages, and disability benefits. However, actually getting these benefits can be complex, as insurance companies often try to minimize payouts or deny claims.

Why are workers’ compensation claims denied?

An insurance company may say that you failed to report the injury within the required timeframe. They may argue that your injuries are not work-related, or that they were pre-existing. Claims can also be denied for failing to follow a doctor’s treatment plan, or after an independent medical examination disputes the extent of your injuries. Mistakes on paperwork or failure to provide supporting evidence can also result in a denied claim.

Do I need a lawyer to file a workers’ compensation claim?

You are not required to have a lawyer. But remember, employers and their insurance companies have the advantage. An experienced workers' compensation lawyer can help you navigate the claims process and fight for your rights. A lawyer can gather evidence, review medical records, and build a strong case to prove the extent of your injuries and the impact on your ability to work. A lawyer can also negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and ensure you receive the maximum benefits you deserve.
