Many workers are not fully aware how far their rights extend following a workplace injury. However, an injured worker has the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits following a workplace accident. It should be noted that employees only have a limited amount of time to file an action, so time is of the essence in these matters.
Workers’ compensation benefits can be extremely beneficial and could help an injured worker address financial hardships following a work injury. Workers’ comp typically covers a certain percentage of the worker’s lost wages, current medical bills, continued medical care and temporary or permanent disability. Additionally, in the event that a worker was killed in a fatal work accident, death benefits are available for dependent family members.
