Workers' Compensation Archives

The medical benefits afforded by workers' compensation

Being injured on the job can turn an individual's life upside down for a significant period of time. Sure, his day-to-day activities will change, particularly if he is unable to work, but his financial reality may also morph into something unexpected. Medical expenses, for example, can leave an injured worker struggling to make ends meet. This problem is exacerbated when the individual is unable to return to work for a period of time, as he may lose part of his income.

How does one initiate a workers' compensation claim?

If you have suffered an on-the-job injury, then your world has likely been turned upside down. You may have felt great one second, and the next your body is wracked with unexpected pain. You might need extensive medical care that is expensive and burdensome, and the whole ordeal may knock you out of work for a significant period of time. With all this piling on top of you, you might find yourself asking how you are going to provide for yourself and your family.

Repetitive stress injuries and workers' compensation

Not all work-related injuries are the result of an accident. Many injuries gradually develop over time, eventually causing significant pain and affecting a person's ability to do his or her job. Repetitive stress may be unseen, but they are real injuries, and in many cases, they are legitimate grounds for a workers' compensation claim.

How can discovery help with a workers' compensation claim?

When pursuing legal action, information is powerful. Those who are fully informed are more likely to be able to put forth strong legal arguments, while the uninformed will be left at a significant disadvantage. Failing to gain access to critical information that can support one's claim can lead to denied compensation. In the workers' compensation context, this could mean losing money to help cover medical expenses and lost wages during a time when an individual is unable to work.
