How Can Workers’ Comp Help With My Injuries?
Workers’ compensation is basically insurance that provides cash benefits and medical treatment for those who are harmed or develop a sickness as a direct result of their job. It was established to ensure that injured workers are given timely medical attention and provided with wage replacement benefits when they are unable to work.
Almost all workers in New York are covered by workers’ compensation, as nearly every employer is required to provide insurance for its personnel. It’s especially helpful for construction workers, who risk their lives on hazardous sites where injuries are common.
It’s important to never underestimate the physical and financial consequences of your workplace injury. What often appears to be a minor setback can escalate into months of recovery, with little ability to make ends meet while income is severely restricted.
In an effort to minimize benefit payouts, some employers and insurers may argue that a worker’s injuries were incurred outside the “scope of employment” or are less severe than alleged.
A successful workers’ compensation lawsuit can help you recover for future medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses that may not be fully reimbursed by insurance benefits.
