The Workers' Compensation Process

If you have been injured or have become ill at work, it is important for you to have some understanding of the process ahead and to know what you will need to do to protect your rights.

  • Medical attention: If you have been in a serious accident or are ill, the most important first step is to seek medical attention right away.
  • Reporting your accident: To make a claim, you will need to report the incident to your employer within 90 days.
  • Employer-directed medical care: At this point, if your case is admitted, you will receive medical care directed by your employer and its insurance carrier. In many cases, the assessments made and medical care recommended by “the company doctors” will be conservative and will fail to treat every aspect of your long-term symptoms and complications.
  • Claim denials: In far too many cases, legitimate employee injury claims are denied outright. Either they claim there are no injuries or that the injuries did not happen at work.

We have seen many instances in which injured workers received inadequate medical care or the outright denials of legitimate claims. Talk with a lawyer right away. We can help you with any aspect of the process, from the initial claim through all types of worker/s’ compensation appeals.
