workers' compensation benefits Archives

Workers' compensation is there for you in the worst of times

You went to work and had a day much like any other. Only this time, your day didn't end like you'd planned. Just as you were about to clock out for the day, you took on a final task for a coworker. You stayed late to help with routine maintenance on a piece of machinery you were familiar with, but the coworker wasn't. You thought all the equipment was turned off, but one part activated while you were working.

Your employer should accommodate your work injury on the job

Manufacturing workers risk injury every day at their jobs. All the moving parts and heavy machinery, as well as dangerous or abrasive chemicals are risk factors for employee accidents. Even those who try to do everything they can to stay safe could still wind up hurt.

Workers' compensation provides more than medical care coverage

You were enjoying your day at work when a coworker reported a younger member of the team making a dangerous error. The young team member didn't take the advice of the other coworker, so you had to step in. Unfortunately, it was too late to prevent the error from causing harm, and you ended up on the wrong side of the tool.

Families can seek out death benefits after losing a loved one

When a worker is killed on the job, his or her family is usually entitled to workers' compensation death benefits. These benefits provide compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses and other financial needs.

Predesignate a doctor in case of a workplace injury

In an emergency, the last thing you have on your mind is which doctor you want to see. Most people just want to feel better, to stop bleeding or to get pain medications to help them feel normal. If not having your own doctor is something that worries you, you may be able to predesignate a personal physician with your employer.

You deserve workers' compensation for occupational illnesses

The workers' compensation system is supposed to be there to help those who are hurt on the job. The problem is that some people are not given all the benefits they deserve as easily as they should receive them. Sometimes, employers don't want to file a claim, or they claim that the injury you've suffered isn't related to your work.

What is a workers' compensation P&S report?

At a certain point in an injured workers' "road to recovery" following an injury, he or she will reach a stationary point of improvement. Hopefully, by this time, the worker has achieved a complete recovery, but in some cases, workers have not completely healed and they're suffering from what is deemed to be a "permanent injury." It's at this point that the workers' medical condition is referred to as "permanent and stationary" or "P&S."

Is depression covered under workers' compensation?

Every state handles workers' compensation a little differently, but most of us can understand the basic nature of this type of compensation. If you get injured while on the job, workers' compensation may cover your medical expenses and help cover your salary while you are recuperating. We hear about these types of scenarios often in relation to jobs in construction or warehouse work. But something you might not consider is that workers may be able to get workers' compensation for mental injuries.
