Frequently Asked Questions

Get Answers, Fast.

  • Questions

  • What things can financial compensation cover?

    Answer

    In a work injury claim, financial compensation can cover a number of things. Primarily, your financial recovery will include things like: time away from work, potential lost wages or earning capacity (due to loss in ability to perform work-related tasks), past and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, emergency medical care (such as ambulance transportation), or other accident-related expenses (such as medication or needing a wheel chair).

  • Is there a time limit on filing a claim?

    Answer

    Yes. Depending on your State’s injury laws, there will be a time limit on filing a claim (also known as a statute of limitations) after a workplace injury has occurred. Each state recognizes its own statute of limitations and will typically range anywhere between 200 days to 2 years or more, depending on circumstances. Taking action immediately after your accident will be crucial to the success of your claim.

  • What should I do after an accident?

    Answer

    Immediately following a work-related incident, we highly suggest that you report the injury to your employer or to a similar entity (such as your Human Resources department). The validity of a work injury case could be contingent on whether you reported the work-related injury in a timely fashion. You may only have as little as 30 days to report the injury to your employer. Speak with us to help make sure all of your bases are covered.

  • Can I file a lawsuit over a workplace injury?

    Answer

    Workers’ compensation exists as a type of protection for both employers and employees. Generally speaking, a workers’ compensation claim can help protect employers from serious lawsuits brought by employees. A lawsuit can be brought over a workplace injury in cases involving third party negligence, such as a negligent equipment manufacturer or other events.

When Can I Sue Outside of Workers’ Compensation?

Although a workers’ compensation claim can cover things like temporary disability or time away from work, the reality is, the amount of compensation could actually fail to cover non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. Depending on the nature of the case, there are certain times when an injured worker can file a lawsuit by way of a personal injury claim rather than through the workers’ compensation system.
