What Are
Workers’ Comp Claims?

Workers’ compensation claims are formal requests made by employees for benefits provided by their employer’s insurance to cover expenses related to work-related injuries or illnesses. These claims typically include medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages resulting from the injury or illness sustained while performing job duties.

Workers’ compensation aims to provide financial assistance and support to employees who suffer injuries or illnesses in the course of their employment, ensuring they receive necessary medical care and compensation without having to pursue legal action against their employer.

How Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Help You?

Unless you’re a federal employee, your state’s specific laws determine:

  • The steps you must follow to apply for benefits
  • Which employees are automatically exempt from workers’ compensation coverage
  • The deadline to file your claim (i.e., the statute of limitations)
  • Whether or not you can choose which doctor treats your workplace injury or illness
  • How many days you must miss work due to your injury or illness before you’ll qualify for wage-loss benefits
  • What forms you need to fill out and who to give them to when you apply for benefits
  • The process, forms, and deadlines for appealing denied workers’ comp claims
  • How long you can receive workers’ compensation for once your employer’s insurer approves your claim
  • The amount you may qualify for in a lump-sum settlement or wage-loss benefits and your payment schedule

States can choose to amend their laws at any time and for any reason. When in doubt, remember: It’s always free to talk to a lawyer about your workers’ comp case.
