Note: benefit eligibility starts the day you report the accident, not on the date the accident occurred.

Workers’ compensation benefits can cover a plethora of injuries that include: motor vehicle accidents that occur during the time of employment, cumulative injuries that lead to hearing or sight loss, slips & falls while at work, repetitive stress activities that impact nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Even the complications due to a cut can qualify for financial compensations – case-in-point: a client experienced a small cut by a piece of metal at work. It resulted in infection, yet the insurance company denied the claim. Our legal team’s persuasive testimony succeeded in our client receiving weekly workers’ compensation checks as well as having his medical bills paid.
Other examples that may qualify for financial compensation include overuse of a body part involved in operating vibrating pieces of construction equipment, repetitive motions while working on an assembly line or a computer. Even continual heavy lifting, as performed by healthcare workers, may qualify – the list goes on.
The Trickery Will Be Exposed
It’s vital to be aware of the following:
The insurance company could stop paying you at any time if they choose not to file a ‘Notice of Compensation, Payable.’
- If the description of your injuries is not as accurate as the insurance company feels it should be, your medical treatments could be severely limited. Keep detailed notes concerning medical appointments in case they question your injury claim.
- The insurance company may hire a medical case manager, also known as a rehab nurse, who could state you are fully recovered when you may not be, and more!
- Your employer may fight your legitimate worker’s compensation claimor discourage you from filing a claim since, as mentioned, your employer’s insurance premiums could increase.
