Knowing the time constraints on filing a Workers’ Compensation claim, as well as how and who to file it with, can be challenging or even accidentally missed if you’ve been hurt while on the job or are suffering from a job-related illness or disease.
It’s important for you to know that Workers’ Compensation benefits can include the following:
- Reimbursement of wages that have been lost due to job-related illness, disease or accident;
- Reimbursement or payment for emergency and ongoing medical treatment that’s needed as a result of a job-related accident, illness or disease;
- Pay for vocational rehabilitation, a process that enables victims of a job-related accident, illness or disease to overcome any resulting obstacles that prevent you from accessing a new occupation or returning to employment;
- Compensation for permanent impairment to your health or physical well-being that are a result of an on-the-job injury or disease.
Workers’ Compensation, unlike federal disability programs such as Social Security disability and SSI, is administered at the state level. Each part of your Workers’ Compensation claim has requirements that must be met, including completion of specific paperwork and submission within stated timelines.
