Workers' Compensation, also know as workers comp, work comp, workmans comp and workmens comp, is a state-mandated insurance program, purchased by employers, that provides compensation to employees who suffer a work-related illness or injury. If your workers' comp claim is successful, you will generally be compensated for any out-of-pocket medical expenses that are incurred due to a work related injury and any wages that are lost while receiving treatment or recovering from work related injuries.
Some work related injuries can be so severe that the workers' compensation process can be simple and straight forward. However, this will not be the case majority of the time. A workers' compensation attorney will be able to guide you through the process and help you receive workmans' comp benefits you deserve. If you believe your workers' compensation benefits are being wrongly terminated, you should consider consulting a workmens' compensation attorney as well.
Most workers' comp attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning you will not have to pay your work comp lawyer unless your workers' compensation case is successful. If you are awarded workers' comp benefits, your attorney will receive a percentage of your workers' comp benefits. The percentage will depend on the state in which you are filing your workmans' compensation claim and should be discussed with your chosen workers' compensation lawyer.
If you are unable to work due to a work injury, it is important to contact a workmans compensation lawyer who can start the claim process. If your workers comp case is not filed within the set time period, you will not be eligible for a workmens comp settlement.
