Workers’ Comp FAQs

What is Workers’ Compensation? Workers’ Compensation is a benefit offered to workers who have been injured on the job or who have suffered an occupational disease.

Who is entitled to Workers’ Comp? Any employee who is injured on the job or who suffers impairment or disability because of the activities involved in his or her job is able to file a Workers’ Compensation claim to receive compensation for injuries. This includes back injuries, burns, inhalation injuries, falls, and repetitive motion injuries (such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).

What if I was at fault for my injury? Even if you were partially or fully at fault for your injury, you may still be able to receive benefits, as long as you were performing the regular duties required for your job.

Are there any exceptions? If you were intoxicated or had a controlled substance in your system at the time of your injury, this may affect your ability to get compensation. An attorney may still be able to help you, however.

What types of benefits am I entitled to? You are entitled to weekly payments for wage loss while you are unable to work (usually equaling 2/3 of your normal pay), payment for medical expenses and possibly a lump sum settlement if you have a long-term disability.

How much money will I receive? That will depend upon your specific case, your injuries, your current pay rate and more. By consulting a Workers’ Compensation lawyer, you can find out what you may be entitled to.

When do I have to file a claim by? You generally have 30 days to file a claim if injured on the job. Occupational diseases usually have different time limits, however, as a condition may arise after many months or even years. The statute of limitations on Workers’ Compensation claims is 2 years, meaning you have up to 2 years to file a claim after your injury or your occupational disease diagnosis.

Do I need an attorney for my Workers’ Comp issue? While you do not have to hire an attorney in order to file a claim or appeal a denial of a claim, it is a good idea to at least consult a capable attorney who can advise you on what to do. Particularly when your claim is denied or your employer refuses to take action, an attorney can assert your rights and work to ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to.
