Workers Compensation is a program that guarantees a level of compensation payable to you if you obtain an injury or condition as a result of a workplace incident. This could include an accident involving a slippery floor, heavy machinery, factory equipment or an illness developed through exposure to chemicals, as well as much more.
Without Workers Compensation you may be forced to resort to litigation and would have to pay for medical expenses as well as make up for lost future earnings.
In the United States, most of these programs are run by the state, however there are also over 1000 commercial insurers offering the service. Most employers are required to have some form of compensation scheme in place although some exceptions are made for small businesses and independent contractors.
Workers Compensation benefits you by simplifying the process should you become injured at work. It is a mutually agreed-upon contract based on the premise that you will receive a set rate of compensation in exchange for giving up your right to go to court.
Given that the majority of court cases are not settled in favor of the injured worker, this type of security will give you peace of mind should you ever need to use it. As part of the contract, employers are mandated a set amount of compensation even if you are found to be liable.
The compensation you receive includes a set percentage of lost earnings, predicted future loss of earnings, medical expenses and extra training costs that may be required should you be forced to change career paths. In cases where the injury results in death, your family will also receive a payout for medical bills and loss of earnings.

It is always advisable to seek legal advice prior to submitting a claim for Workers Compensation and to ensure that you’re familiar with the claim process prior to initiating it.
If you employer rejects the claim, then further litigation steps can be taken to have it independently examined by a court. Some employers may offer a settlement to avoid court action. Settlement offers can have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s best that you speak to your legal counsel about any offer that is made.
To support your claim, an independent medical exam may be required.
When you attend your examination, one of our trained physicians will assess your physical well being and write a report based on the findings. These findings will assist in determining the correct level of compensation owed to you.
In some circumstances you may be awarded a Temporary Partial Disability Benefit. This is a benefit payable to you if you are able to return to work but cannot complete your normal range of everyday tasks. If you suffer a permanent disability as a result of a workplace injury, you may receive a Permanent Partial Disability Benefit, which is a more generous package that compensates for lost future earnings.
