Workers’ compensation laws allow employees to certain benefits when the employee is injured on the job, specifically an accident arising out of and in the context of employment. Most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Benefits may include temporary total disability benefits while you can’t work, payment of your medical bills, permanent partial disability benefits, or total disability benefits.
As with any injury claim, including worker’s compensation injuries, be sure to contact a personal injury attorney immediately before speaking to insurance adjusters. Do a simple internet search, and you will see how speaking with insurance adjusters is never wise without counsel. Remember, even your own insurance company doesn’t want to pay you any money, no matter how much you are injured.
