How Workers’ Compensation Works

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

How Workers’ Compensation Works

Workers’ compensation laws are in place to ensure that workers who are injured at work receive medical treatment and appropriate monetary compensation for their injuries. Workers’ comp is designed to bypass the costly process of litigation while providing guaranteed benefits for injured workers. Under workers’ comp, workers who are injured while at work are eligible to receive clearly defined benefits when injury or disability occurs as a result of a work accident.

Most of the fifty-five workers’ compensation programs in the United States are administered by each individual state. Each program varies in terms of compensation and benefits, including which injuries and illnesses are covered, but most all employers are required by the law to have workers’ comp insurance.

How Workers’ Compensation Works for You

Most workers’ compensation programs provide for medical expenses and lost earnings. When a worker is injured while at work, he or she receives immediate compensation for medical expenses, then medical benefits for lost work after seven days of disability.

Workers’ compensation doesn’t only cover injuries sustained at work, it also provides for illnesses or conditions resulting from long-term exposure to hazardous conditions. These conditions can range from sunburn or skin cancer from working long hours in the sun, such as construction workers do, to carpal tunnel syndrome caused by constant typing. In order to be covered under workers’ comp, medical evidence must prove that the illness or injury was caused by the worker’s job, conditions of employment or working environment. You might be entitled to workers’ comp benefits even if you suffered an injury outside of the workplace, providing that you were there on behalf of your employer, such as while running errands or transporting company goods.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
