Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation
What types of accidents are covered by workers’ compensation?
Any type of accident that occurs at work may be covered by workers’ compensation. Accidents and injuries tend to vary depending on the type of work you do. For instance, if you work in construction, common accidents include falls from scaffolding or ladders, power tool injuries and slipping or tripping on materials left lying around.
Accidents that are caused by your work are also covered. For instance, if you work in manufacturing, you may develop a repetitive stress injury. Even if you initially notice it when not at work, your work likely caused it, so these injuries are typically covered.
What can be covered by workers’ compensation benefits?
Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to cover any expenses that your injury causes. This can include initial medical care, rehabilitative care and lost wages.
Do I need to go to a doctor approved by my employer?
Sometimes, your employer or its insurance company may require that you go to a certain doctor to have your claim approved. You should find this out as early as possible by asking your employer. In some cases, you may need to see a doctor who is not on your company’s “approved” list. Here is when an attorney can help you.
