The work related injuries lawyers of Pravati can help
When an employee is injured at work, they don’t need to file a personal injury claim in order to get damages for medical costs and lost wages. Instead, they simply need to file a worker’s compensation claim. Worker’s compensation is insurance coverage that employers provide to cover the cost of workplace accidents suffered by employees. Receipt of worker’s compensation benefits prevents an employee from suing his or her employer or coworkers after an injury. In 2011, the Social Security Administration reported that worker’s compensation laws covered roughly 125 million employees with $6 trillion in wages paid to covered workers.
Worker’s Compensation Claims
Worker’s compensation pays for a variety of financial damages. It covers medical costs, including travel, for treatment related to the injury. It also covers lost wages, therapy and sometimes additional damages when the employee suffers a total disability.
While employers don’t approve claims, they do have the right to dispute them if they think your injury doesn’t qualify for coverage. They may dispute your claim if:
- The injury did not happen at work
- The injury did not happen during work hours
- The injury was not serious and/or didn’t require medical treatment or time off
- The injury occurred while the employee was taking part in activities outside the scope of his or her job duties
