You have a right to a safe, healthful workplace. If you’ve suffered an injury on the job, make sure you know what kind of benefits you might receive under workers’ compensation coverage. Your employer must carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage. They should give you a workers’ compensation claim to complete and return to them.
In some instances, legitimate claims may be denied by aggressive compensation carriers. An insurer can claim you haven’t been injured or the injury suffered isn’t serious enough to qualify for benefits. In this case, you may lose critical benefits. These include medical care coverage, financial help, and job retraining.
