While there are a few exceptions, an employee is typically covered by Workers Comp as long as the injury happens during the course of employment. For example, a plumber is covered by Workers Comp while completing numerous daily service calls; however, the plumber will not be covered while traveling to and from work. The legal definition of a Workers Comp injury has expanded over the years to include an increase of injuries. For example, if that same plumber is a member of the company volleyball team and suffers an injury during a volleyball game, it is possible that his injury will be covered by Workers Comp benefits. Burger Law’s Workers Comp injury attorneys at have the experience to provide you with precise information regarding your workers comp injury.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you have been injured on the job and awarded Workers Comp benefits for your injury, you should receive payment for your medical treatment, payment for missed work due to the injury, a compensation plan if permanently disabled, and funds for retraining if you’re unable to return. If your job doesn’t provide you with adequate compensation to combat the Workers Comp injury you have sustained, Burger Law attorney’s will contest the company to obtain the benefits you rightly deserve. Many workers injured on the job do not realize that they are authorized to receive these disability benefits. If you would like to learn more, let us evaluate your case with a free consultation.
