If you are injured at work you are entitled to file a workman’s compensation claim.
Any injury you suffer while under the direction of your employer falls under this area. All employers are required by law to have workers compensation insurance in case a work injury happens.
Not only is your employer required to compensate you for your injury but for loss of work time and if you can’t continue to work, loss of future earnings, and any pain and suffering you may experience.
Unfortunately, even after you have reported your injury to your employer or union, and seen a doctor, sometimes workers compensation claims are not filed or may be denied.
Some employers or insurance companies say it is because of the type of injury you have.
There are many typical work injuries and most likely, if you were hurt at work, you will fall into a work injury category.
What Are Typical Work Injuries?
Typical work injuries can include repetitive stress injury or hand-arm vibration syndrome; both of which are caused by the constant use of vibrating tools.
Slips and falls, chemical toxins that you may inhale including asbestos, acoustic sound shock to your ear canals, cuts and abrasions, and back injuries.
Other work injuries can be caused by faulty equipment or inadequate training and supervision in using certain equipment.
None of these injuries are your fault and if you do have a work related injury, you are entitled to file a workman’s compensation claim.
Filing a workman’s compensation claim is not hard, but many employees feel that if they do file a claim they will lose their job.
Employers are not allowed to terminate your position if you file a workman’s compensation claim – for any reason.
There are laws in place that protect all employees from this and employers are required to carry the appropriate insurance to cover these claims.
If you feel you are being denied compensation, where can you get help?
