Mainly, Insurance companies that cover an employer pay for Workers’ Compensation benefits. Sometimes, an injured worker can see state disability benefits if the claim is denied by the insurance company.
Yes, an injured work can self-represent but since the litigation process is so complex, involving many nuances, resolving a claim takes much longer than normal. Also, access to benefits may be delayed due to little to no knowledge about the law and your rights. Hiring a workers compensation attorney can ease the litigation process tremendously.
Make sure you report your injury immediately once you are injured to a supervisor. Also, you may request medical treatment from your employer. In addition, make sure you complete a workers’ compensation claim form and return it to your employer.
You should report your injury as soon as you have knowledge that your injury was caused by work. An injury should be reported to a direct manager or supervisor immediately.
