Workplace injuries, which can sometimes include illnesses, are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Filing for workers’ comp may seem simple and straightforward, but it may not be. There are deadlines to meet, and investigation is needed to identify all the relevant factors, for example if any third party may also be liable.
In addition, it is important to pursue all possible types of compensation due including payments for medical bills; current and, if applicable, future, lost wages; and possible third-party liability. Depending on the circumstances, there could be many relevant issues to consider.
