If you were injured at work, you are required to inform your employer within 30 days of the incident or the date that you become aware that your injury or illness is work-related. If you do not notify your employer, you may lose your right to seek workers' compensation benefits. We also highly recommend that you consult with an attorney about this matter. Work injury claims have the potential to be highly complex, particularly if they involve catastrophic injuries or a lasting disability that will impact the worker for years to come or for life. An attorney can help you properly file the paperwork for your claim, including all supporting documentation that will help ensure approval. If any dispute or issue arises regarding the validity of your claim, an attorney can immediately take action to address this matter. If your claim is
denied, your attorney can file an
appeal on your behalf.
Workers' compensation may cover any injury or illness that a person sustains as a result of his or her employment. This may include accidents that happen at work as well as injuries related to exposure at work, such as exposure to toxins or loud noises. Repetitive motion injuries may also be covered.
