Work Injury

 

Work injuries are experienced by an employee on the job and during work hours. Work injuries are typically caused by third parties such as equipment, vehicles, tools and software not created by the employer. Work injuries typically fall under workers' compensation cases. Employees must be provided workers' compensation benefits by their employers. Victims of third party injuries may be entitled to compensation from the third party. There are five types of benefits provided by workers' compensation for work injuries:

  • Medical care benefits
  • Temporary disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Vocational rehabilitation services
  • Death benefits
Workers’ compensation provides compensation for work injuries, based on the relationship between the injured worker and the employer. For example, if you are employed by a company and you suffer a work injury, you are compensated under workers' compensation coverage no matter whose fault the injury was.

Getting workers' compensation benefits such as compensation for wages, food, lodging, commissions and overtime can be complicated. Also, workers' compensation pays for work injuries, but not for stress and anguish, which can be especially important in cases where work injuries result in permanent disability. Personal injury lawyers can help you get the right amount of compensation. If an injury is caused by a third party source, a personal injury lawyer can help establish negligence on your behalf.

Attorney Search Network can help you find a personal injury lawyer for your work injuries. Contact us today to consult with a personal injury lawyer about getting compensation benefits and how you can protect your rights.
