What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a system that provides financial support to people who have been injured on the job. It is required by law for most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, to ensure their employees are covered when injuries occur. Workers’ compensation is not a way to hold employers liable for negligence or charge them with crimes for harming workers; rather, it more closely resembles a benefit system or insurance plan. However, the assistance of an attorney is necessary when filing a workers’ compensation claim because of the essential legal considerations and the protection of employee rights.

Common Types of Work Injuries

Work injuries can be caused by single accidents, which may result in severe injuries such as brain and spine injuries. Or, a work-related injury can result from a long period of repetitive motion. These types of injuries may be more minor, such as muscle strain. However, even less severe work injuries can be costly to treat and impact a victim’s ability to work.

Some common types of on-the-job injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Muscle tears
  • Chronic pain
  • Spinal cord injuries

The Workers’ Compensation Claim Process

To file a workers’ compensation claim, you must go through the following steps:

  • Step 1: Start by reporting your injuries to your employer.
  • Step 2: Your employer will provide you with a list of medical providers who are approved by their workers’ compensation insurance company.
  • Step 3: You must visit one of the approved providers in order to receive coverage for your medical care, unless you have predesignated a doctor prior to your injury.
  • Step 4: The doctor who is treating your injury will work with your employer and their insurance company to provide updates on your healing progress and ensure the bills are paid for.
  • Step 5: To receive other benefits such as lost wages, you will need to negotiate with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company. Additional benefits may be provided as weekly or biweekly checks, or in a lump sum.

Our Roswell workers’ compensation attorneys can help you through the process of filing your claim.
