Find a Workers Compensation Lawyer

If you have been injured on the job, workers' compensation laws may entitle you to certain benefits. These benefits can include payment of medical bills, compensation while you're unable to work, vocational rehabilitation, permanent partial disability benefits, or total disability benefits. Your employer's workers' compensation insurance is responsible for paying these benefits.
Injuries typically covered by workers' comp include:

  • Traumatic physical injuries
  • Repeated trauma injuries
  • Mental injuries
  • Occupational diseases

If you're injured while at work or develop a job-related occupational disease you should notify your employer as quickly as possible, because your ability to receive benefits may be limited if you wait to notify your employer.
You should promptly seek medical treatment for your injury. Make sure to tell the doctor that your injury occurred on the job or in connection with your job. Once you've sought medical treatment for your injury or disease, you should consider contacting a workers' comp lawyer to help guide you through the process of applying for workers' compensation.
