What to do After a Work-Related Injury
In most states, any employer with more than three employees must have workers’ compensation insurance. You should report your injury immediately to your employer to ensure the best chance of receiving benefits. Many states are “no-fault” workers’ compensation states, meaning you do not need to prove your injury was the fault of your employer to qualify for benefits. Within this workers’ comp system, your employer should provide a panel of approved doctors to choose from to receive care and treatment. It’s critical to pick from these employer-approved doctors or managed care plans.
If benefits are not received or denied, it’s time to act fast.
If an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company denies benefits, there is still a chance you could be financially compensated. Call for a free, confidential consultation with a Montlick Injury Attorney today to find out your options.

Who is Covered Under Workers' Compensation?
General Workers' Compensation Law
In most cases, a business with more than three regular employees (full or part-time) is legally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which is generally a no-fault accident insurance program. If your employer carries worker’s compensation insurance and you sustained injuries while at work or on the job, you may be eligible to receive medical expenses, a portion of lost income, and even disability benefits regardless of who was at fault.

What Benefits Can I Receive?
There are three main types of benefits in a workers’ compensation claim. These include:
Medical benefits. The workers’ compensation insurance should pay for qualifying medical treatment if the treatment is for an injury at work or on the job. This includes hospital bills, doctor bills, prescriptions, physical therapy, and travel expenses, if necessary.
Disability benefits. Disability benefits are usually available when there are permanent injuries, and fully recovering from the injury may be impossible. This depends upon one’s ability to return to work as determined by a doctor.
Wage benefits. After being injured, workers can receive a percentage of their lost income.
When Will I Start Receiving Benefits?
Each workers’ compensation claim will look a bit different, but generally, workers are entitled to weekly income benefits if unable to work for more than seven days. In many cases, the first check should be mailed within 21 days after the first day of missed work. If the absence is more than 21 consecutive days, the income benefits will also cover the first week.
What if Someone Else or Another Employee Caused My Injury?
It can vary, but if the acts or omissions of an individual or a company other than your employer cause injuries, you may be able to pursue workers’ compensation benefits through your employer in addition to pursuing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. In such cases, you can pursue medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages, subject to applicable state law. When we say we treat our clients like family, we mean it. That means fighting for your best interest.
