If you have been injured on the job, you know that your health is more important than anything else. Unfortunately, you also know that your employer may not play by the rules when it comes to workers’ compensation.
In a perfect world, anyone who qualifies for workers’ compensation benefits would be able to make a claim and begin to receive payments without delay. In the real world, however, this doesn’t always happen.
One of the primary concerns regarding workers’ compensation is a company that will fight tooth and nail against paying benefits when they are due. For example, some companies argue that the injury did not happen at work.
Another concern is that your original claim may be denied, meaning that you’ll have to file an appeal. There is nothing wrong with doing this, but it can take up a lot of time. As a result, you are not receiving money in the interim.
Finally, you may run into concerns with how long your workers’ compensation benefits will last. In this case, you need to consider other options, such as Social Security Disability.
If you are entitled to workers’ compensation, there is no reason to sit back and be treated poorly. You have rights and they need to be protected at all times.
