What are the benefits that someone can receive from worker’s compensation?
The very minimum is that worker’s compensation insurance companies need to pay a reasonable amount of the medical bills that will pile up after being injured on the job. If it comes to you losing more than three days of work, then you are entitled to receive temporary disability benefits to compensate for income that was lost. There should be no issue at all if the injury was caused by negligence of an employer, co-worker or malfunction.
Is a lawsuit needed?
The Worker’s Compensation is the usual remedy for a work-related injury whether short term or long term. This means that you can’t just sue your employer in court even if it was the employers fault. You may however sue a third party if it is necessary while filing for a worker’s compensation claim. Usually a lawyer can help or advise if one is necessary for that third party.
