If you have an occupation-related injury or illness (such as asbestos poisoning, industrial machinery injuries, carpal tunnel, falls on the job etc.), workers' compensation provides you with monetary assistance. Workers' compensation helps the employee financially and legally protects the employer from lawsuits.
Workers' comp provides funds for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Death benefits like funeral expenses, if the situation ended in the death of the employee
Once an injury makes an employee unable to earn full wages for three consecutive days or their injury requires medical attention, they can receive funds. The amount is 66.66% of their spendable earnings per week, subject to a cap.
If you feel as if you are not getting the money that is rightfully owed to you, you will need an attorney to facilitate your workers' comp case. The experienced attorneys at Castle Law Office will work with you and your employer to get the money due to you.
