What A Workers’ Compensation Claim Can Mean For You And Your Family
Your employer is required by law to hold workers’ compensation insurance. This should support you and other injured workers in case any kind of workplace injury occurs.
As an injured worker, you have the right to financial support. Settlements can and often do include compensation for ambulance and emergency room services, surgeries, physical therapy and any ongoing medical care you may need. Workers’ compensation can also support your daily life throughout your recovery and can provide for:
- Your lost wages
- Additional care expenses
- Changes to your home and adaptive technology if you are now wheelchair-bound
- Other bills you have throughout your recovery
In the worst case, where you or your loved one dies, workers’ compensation claims can also provide for funeral expenses and other end-of-life care.
