Don't make these 6 common worker's compensation mistakes

Workers' compensation is a system of laws that provide employees with insurance and payment of lost wages should they be injured on the job. These claims can often be difficult to fight, even if it seems obvious that your injury happened at work and should be covered. The following tips will help you avoid some of the common reasons why workers' comp claims are often denied.

Returning to work after an injury

What you need to know about going back to work after being injured on the job

After being injured on the job, many workers want to get back to work as quickly as possible. Missing work can put you in a difficult financial situation, and you may simply miss being productive at your job. However, it's important to take your time and make sure you are adequately recovered before going back to work.

Are work-related car accidents covered by workers' comp?

Anyone on the road can find themselves in a crash with another vehicle. While you may drive extra carefully when you're using a company car or traveling for your job, work-related car accidents happen frequently all over Pennsylvania. So if you're injured while driving on the job, are you entitled to workers' compensation benefits?

Do you know why workers’ compensation claims are denied?

If there comes a time when you make a workers' compensation claim, you hope that it is approved as soon as possible. This means you can begin to receive compensation for your injuries or illness. Unfortunately, there are times when a workers' compensation claim is denied. When this happens, it means that you aren't going to receive any money.

Study shows increase in fatal accidents in the workplace

According to federal data analyzed by the National Safety Council, unintentional injuries in the workplace have risen substantially in the past few years. In fact, 2015 saw the most unintentional injuries in the workplace since 2008. More than 4,000 workers died due to unintentional injuries in 2014. This indicates an increase of about six percent from 2013 to 2014. This is the first time the number of preventable workplace deaths has increased so significantly in 20 years. In the past two decades, over 90,000 workers have died.

Avoiding three common workplace accidents

Whether you work in an office making copies all day or you pursue a more physically strenuous career, workplace injuries can happen. It can be hard to imagine that a workplace injury can happen at a mundane day at the office and most people think workplace injury is a phenomenon reserved for high physical stress jobs. The truth is that it can happen in any workplace and the risk is always lingering. If you are injured on the job, you not only risk your physical health but your financial security, both of which can be difficult to recover from.

Temporary workers: Safe and healthy workplace for all

Whether a job is temporary or permanent, all workers in the U.S. have a right to a healthy and safe workplace. In order for temporary workers to have this, the host employer and the staffing agency must work together. In some cases, the responsibility of keeping a workplace healthy and safe will overlap between the two. When this happens, communication is necessary to ensure that the division of responsibility is understood by both parties.

The outcomes the studies examined included the recovery of physical health and function, earnings recovery, return to work, and the access and satisfaction with the medical treatment they received.
