If you've been injured at work, there may be medical bills to consider, lost earnings, time off work due to the injury, and potential long term problems preventing you from returning to work. Worker's compensation insurance is designed to cover your medical expenses and most of your wages if you're injured at work – but what happens if you run into problems with the insurance company or your employer?
Injuries at work can take many forms, from slip and fall accidents to industrial accidents, injuries caused by faulty machinery, driving-related accidents and many others. Your employer is required by law to carry proper insurance to cover you in the event of an accident. You are not responsible for proving negligence against your employer in order to qualify for compensation payments.
Although worker's compensation is designed to support injured employees and keep work-related injuries from developing into complicated lawsuits, in practice it is rarely that simple. Your employer or the insurance company may stop paying benefits, or deny your claim.
