With worker’s compensation laws different in every state, it can be difficult to know exactly what you are supposed to be entitled to. This is especially true if there is a jurisdiction issue with your claim. This can happen if you were hurt in a different state or country than your work is physically located in or if you were traveling when you became ill or injured. With so many different circumstances, how can you tell if you are getting the right benefits or not? Luckily for you, we are here to help!
The first thing you need to ask yourself is “Am I getting compensated for my injury?” If the answer is no, then we have a big problem. After all, the claim is called worker’s compensation. Unfortunately, many times people will make a claim for worker’s comp and never hear anything else about it. They may be stuck with medical bills and wonder what on earth is taking so long. Even when they ask their employer what is happening with their claim, they may be brushed off and assured things are being handled. This isn’t always true, and can really come back to harm the person who was injured.
One of the main things that should be covered under worker’s compensation is any treatment and rehabilitation that is needed for you to return to work. Due to the fact that you were injured on company time while doing something you were expressly ordered to do, you should be covered and free from liability regarding the price of your treatment. While there are other benefits to which you are entitled, this is one of the first things that you should make sure you are receiving. These benefits are things which you often need to receive in order to sustain your current lifestyle.
