Issues of Concern to Win Benefits
There are a variety of matters to take care of when you have been injured and want to win your claim for Workers Compensation. These include the following issues of concern:
- Eligibility – The most important thing is to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible, and keep a record of your report.
- Employer Factors – This type of insurance coverage reduces lawsuits against employers. If the employer does not carry it, they may be sued by the injured employee.
- Liability – Provide proof that the injury is related to your work activities performed on behalf of your employer. This system actually is a no-fault system, and it offers protection from litigation to co-workers and employers.
- Claims – Claims must be made properly and within time limits. Missing a deadline could result in denial. If claims are against a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, any award may be shared with employer for any amount that employer paid as Workers Compensation benefits.
- Medical Concerns – In some cases, awards may be made even though the injury aggravated a pre-existing condition.
- Employment Concerns – Benefits help you get by in life until you can return to work. If you are permanently disabled, there may be other options to consider, such as social security disability benefits.
