Qualifying for Worker’s Compensation – You may have a claim.
You may have a claim for workers compensation if you were injured or have an illness that occurred at your workplace or while you were engaged in a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred at your place of employment. If you have been injured while in the course and scope of your employment you may be entitled to get workers compensation benefits. You need not prove that your employer or a co-worker was at fault for your injury. Workers compensation benefits provide income loss benefits and medical expense benefits. Also, if you have suffered an amputation or loss of use of a body part (hand, finger, arm, leg, foot, etc.), you may be entitled to benefits. If you have suffered injuries that result in scarring or disfigurement to your head, face or neck, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits.
