Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that must be held by every employer in the United States. Workers’ compensation is in place to provide you with monetary compensation for any losses you experience as a direct result of a work-related injury.
Unlike most personal injury claims, if you suffer an injury on the job, you do not need to prove negligence was the cause of your injury. Workers’ compensation are simply granted for injuries that occurred as a result of your employment. Please note, if you decide to receive workers’ compensation, you will no longer be able to file a claim for losses like pain and suffering or mental anguish.
At our law firm, we are dedicated to offering representation to individuals in Muskogee or anywhere in Oklahoma who believe that they have a worker’s compensation claim. Call us at (918) 201-1810 to schedule a free consultation.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation is not just limited to physical injuries at work:
Workers’ comp covers any illnesses and medical problems that are a direct result of your employment.
Workers’ comp can also be awarded for illnesses and injuries that may have not been diagnosed over long periods of time. An example of this would be asbestos workers discovering illnesses and complications many years after they have stopped working with asbestos.
For most workers’ compensation claims, you simply sign a release which states that, in return for workers’ compensation benefits, you agree not to file any additional claims against the employer.
How Much Will I Get While on Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation payment amounts are determined by various factors. Your employer and their insurance company may try to prevent you from receiving the workers’ compensation you deserve.
