What is workers’ compensation?
While many of us go to work without a second thought, sometimes accidents in the workplace happen. This is true even of the “safer” jobs like office work. There are always risks, even if they seem nonexistent at first. If you should be disabled or injured while at your place of work, it is entirely possible that you might be entitled to some kind of monetary compensation. The workers’ compensation program was created mostly to help with this process and make sure that employees injured on the job receive compensation for their time and wounds. With that said, the process isn’t always an easy one nor is it one that is flawless. And when it comes right down to it, sometimes employers just care more about their money than they do the safety of their workers. While this is unfortunate, it does not mean that you can’t recover the money to which you are entitled.
It should be noted that some injuries are so intense that they have the potential to change your life in a major way, and some of them are actually permanent in nature. Depending upon their number and severity, it is easily possible that they could considerably impact the quality of your life forever. When this happens, you will find that there are a few different things to take into account when it comes to your workers’ compensation claim. The first, of course, is the amount of money you will find yourself paying for medical care. Even if you have decent insurance, medical care is not cheap! This is especially true if you find yourself needing to visit the hospital multiple times and receive extensive treatment.
The next thing to consider is the loss of wages, both current and future, that you are experiencing as a result of the injury you’ve sustained. If you can no longer work, you might be without an income and therefore have no way to pay your bills. And if the injuries were severe enough, they might permanently lower your earning potential. This is another aspect that can impact your workers’ compensation claim. An attorney can look at your case, your medical diagnoses, and your earning potential and help use that information to ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
