    What About Worker’s Compensation Benefits?

    by Aug 6, 2019

    Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

    If you are injured due to a work-related issue, this means you may receive compensation for your pains. Remember, this only occurs if you are an employee of the company, the company has insurance, and everything falls under state regulations. If you have any questions about these restrictions, you may opt for contacting a worker’s compensation lawyer. They will be up to date on all the latest policies and will most likely be able to answer your specific questions. For general benefits information, it is helpful to remember both what your benefits are. and where they come from.

    What Are My Benefits?

    Before the explanation of the benefits, you may be wondering what are the most filed claim types. The common ones are:

    • Bone fractures
    • Slashes or piercing wounds
    • Inflamed tissue
    • Sprains/ Injuries due to strain

    Remember, these claims will not be covered if they are self-inflicted, even if the occurrence happened on company property. When you are covered, your benefits should include time for your recovery by allowing access to wages. If you miss work, the support should be there so that you will not become behind on other payments. This should also include your medical expenses such as diagnosing the injury or illness, then the following treatment for it. Longer term recovery efforts such as rehabilitation may come with the policy, but that does depend on which state you reside in.

    Who Provides My Benefits?

    The reason why most worker’s compensation claims have state regulations is that many state-run insurance programs cover your benefits. Also, the rest of the claims are covered either directly out of the company’s pocket or through payments coming to you from an insurance company. The insurance companies may be private.

    Your specific provider depends heavily on whom your policy dictates will sign the actual check. As stated, it will most likely be an insurance company in which your employer has bought coverage. However, this could be an unbiased “hired” administrator that is brought in only to supply the payments for your medical expenses.

    When it comes to your recovery, it may not be as important who provides your benefits, but that they come at all. If you fall into the regulations for your injury, you should be eligible to receiving these after you file your claim. If you have any questions regarding your current situation or are have come to an obstacle, do not hesitate to reach out to a work injury lawyer in Milwaukee, WI. Their job is to make sure you have all the information you need to recover well and be back in the workforce.

    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.
