Workers' Compensation, also know as workers' comp, work comp, workmans' comp and workmens' comp, is a state-mandated insurance program provided by your employer. Nearly every company with at least two employees must have workers' compensation insurance. Workers' comp insurance provides benefits to employees who are involved in a work-related injury. If you file a successful workers' compensation claim, you will usually receive compensation for out-of-pocket medical expenses that pile up after your injury at work. You can also recover a portion of your lost wages if you missed work due to your injury.
Some work-related injuries can be so serious and clearly disabling that the workers' compensation filing process can be simple and straight forward. You may not even be initially denied by your company's insurance provider. Unfortunately, this is not the case for thousands of US employees every year. A workers' compensation attorney can help you navigate through the workers' comp filing process and work to try to get you the workmans' comp benefits you deserve after an injury at work. If your workers' compensation claim was denied, or if you believe your workers' compensation benefits were wrongly terminated, you should consider speaking with a workers' compensation attorney as well.
Workers' compensation attorneys usually work on a contingency-fee basis, you will only pay your attorney if your workers' compensation claim is successful. If your workers' compensation claim is successful and you are awarded benefits, your attorney will receive a percentage of your settlement. The percentage your attorney is entitled to will depend on the state where you were injured. You can also ask your workers' comp attorney any additional questions on how the payment process works.
If you are unable to work due to an on-the-job injury, it is important to contact a workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible. You have a limited time to file a claim successfully. If your workers' comp case is not filed within the your state's period of eligibility, you will not be eligible for a workmens' comp settlement.
