Hurt On The Job? What Is Workers’ Compensation?
- Workers’ Compensation is a “no‑fault” legal system designed to provide limited benefits to employees injured at work.
- You do not have to prove that your employer or a co‑worker did something to cause your injury and the employer cannot dispute your injury by claiming that your injury was caused by your own carelessness or recklessness.
- There are basically two types of work injuries ‑‑ specific or cumulative. Examples of a specific injury: hurting your back in a fall or lifting a heavy object or getting hurt in a car accident while making a delivery or sales call. Examples of a cumulative injury: hurting your hand, back, or other part of the body from doing the same motion over and over such as assembly or warehouse work, repetitive computer work or keyboarding or cancer from a constant exposure to certain chemicals.
- Workers’ Compensation benefits are limited by law and include reasonable medical care for your injury, temporary disability indemnity while you are off work because of your injury, permanent disability indemnity when your injury stabilizes and return‑to‑work indemnity if your injury precludes you from returning to you job.
- Attorney fees are set by law and range from 9% to 15% of any settlement or award. Fees must be approved by a Judge and if there is no settlement or award, there is no fee. There are also no court costs.
