What You Need To Do
Although you may be inundated with taking care of your illness or injury, in order to make sure you start to receive your workers compensation benefits quickly there are a few important things you must do as soon as possible and they are:
- Immediately after you have sustained your injury, or learn about your workplace illness, you need to notify your employer.
- Completely fill out the claim forms and return them to your employer who will then forward them to the insurance company providing the workers compensation insurance. Any missing information will delay the processing of your claim.
- Medical proof of the injury is required so seeing a health professional is vital to pushing your claim through the system. State workers compensation law is designed to promote payment of benefits to the injured employee as quickly as possible so the employee does not incur any additional suffering.
Once all of the paperwork has been submitted and upon its review by the insurance company weekly benefit payments will be made directly to the employee. Workers compensation benefits will end only after the employee has resumed work or on one month’s notice of the employee having been let go from his job.
You’ve suffered enough both physically and emotionally. You need to focus on your recovery. Put the legal work in the hands of seasoned workers compensation attorneys who know the workers compensation settlement process and will stay on top your claim until you start receiving your weekly benefits.
