When workers are injured on the job, they are usually eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Workplace accidents can be caused by a number of factors including employee or employer mistakes. Workers’ compensation benefits are available to help injured workers financially as they recover.
While it is easy to say that workers may qualify for workers’ compensation, it is not always as easy to actually collect workers’ compensation benefits. Insurance companies may try to argue that you don’t qualify for workers’ compensation. They may claim that medical treatment was not related to a workplace accident or that the injury is not as severe as you claim. They may argue that you are not eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits because you did not follow the correct procedures in making your claim.
