You may be entitled to compensation for work-related injuries.
Workers compensation coverage is designed to compensate you for injuries and related losses suffered while working for your employer. Even if you were injured outside your normal workplace, if you were on-the-clock or taking care of your employer’s business, you may be covered.

Workers compensation may cover the following types of work-related injuries:
- Automobile accidents
- Manufacturing or warehouse injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries, amputations or broken bones
- Work-related cancers from asbestos or other toxic products
- Chemical burns, scarring or disfigurement
- Back and neck pain
- Repetitive stress injuries resulting in swelling, pain, muscle strain, or tissue damage
- Exacerbation of preexisting injuries
- Mental health injuries (trauma, stress, etc.)
Workers compensation benefits are intended to help employees cover medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages resulting from work-related injuries. Workers compensation claims can be complicated. Coverage may be denied or benefits may be lower than expected. A licensed workers compensation attorney can evaluate the facts of your particular situation to find the best approach.
When you suffer a work-related injury, take immediate action to protect your rights. Failure to report a work-related injury in a timely manner can affect your coverage, and failure to seek proper medical attention can slow your recovery. Also, the longer you wait to get workers compensation benefits, the more serious your financial situation can become. If you lose even a few days of work, your income may suffer, which could affect your ability to stay current on bills or meet other obligations. Relationships might suffer if you are unable to contribute financially and physically. And if your injury is serious enough that you require long-term care, family members might have to take time away from work or school to help care for you. Take action now so your work-related injury doesn’t lead to unnecessary stress and complications in other areas of your life.
