Workers’ comp claims are intended to pay you money for your medical bills and lost wages, after you suffer a work-related injury or illness. If you are unable to work because of an injury or illness caused during the course of your work duties, then you are probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This compensation is a type of state-mandated insurance that most types of employers are required to carry.
Our attorneys can help you determine what kind of benefits you are owed. Workers’ compensation covers a wide range of injuries and illnesses, including:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Cancer and other terminal illnesses
You do not have to be free of fault in order to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Whether your work injury or illness was caused by you, your coworkers, your boss or a third party, workers’ comp is a no-fault insurance system. In exchange, you lose your right to sue your employer for damages.
