If you suffered an injury on the job, you need to know where to go for workers' compensation assistance. Federal statutes provide the legal guidelines for workers’ comp, while state laws fill in the blanks by specifying the steps a worker must take to receive financial help. The workers’ compensation laws passed at the state and federal levels provide compensation for employees without initiating legal action against employers. Unlike personal injury lawsuits, workers' compensation claims do not require an injured employee to prove negligence.
Although employers pay into a workers’ compensation insurance program, some employers refuse to pay out claims to injured workers. When this happens, a worker needs to know where to go for workers’ compensation assistance. Contacting an attorney who specializes in handling workers’ comp cases can help you receive the compensation you deserve for getting hurt on the job. Hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer lets your employer know you are serious when it comes to receiving compensation for your work-related injury.
