Need Pre Settlement Funding On A Workers Comp Lawsuit Settlement?
Customers who have been injured on a commercial property as a result of the property owner’s negligence will generally need to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover the damages they suffer. Employees who are injured at work, on the other hand, do not need to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to get medical expenses and lost wages reimbursed. Instead, they need to make a worker’s compensation claim.
Understanding Worker’s Compensation
Worker’s Compensation is a type of insurance that offers benefits to employees who are injured on the job regardless of whose fault the injury was. Worker’s Compensation is designed to make an employee whole by covering all medical expenses related to the injury and reimbursing for lost wages. When a worker receives workers compensation benefits, they are not permitted to sue their employers nor are they permitted to sue a coworker for additional damages. There are two exceptions to the rule against suing an employer, however. Crew members of a vessel under the Jones Act or intrastate railroad workers under the Federal Employers Liability Act are both permitted to sue in certain circumstances.
Filing Your Worker’s Compensation Claim
Every state has its own requirements for filing claims. Generally speaking, claims must be filed immediately after the incident occurs. Medical care should be accessed immediately and the employer should be notified as well. The employer will generally have a claim form asking the injured employee to explain the incident. Employers do have the right to dispute a claim and even if they don’t dispute your claim still may be denied. This can occur when:
- your injury is not serious enough
- it doesn’t take place during working hours
- it doesn’t take place while you are performing the duties of your job
- the injury doesn’t require medical treatment
- there is no necessary time off.

Understanding Worker’s Compensation Benefits
When you qualify for Worker’s Compensation benefits, you will receive medical expenses related to the injury that qualified you for Worker’s Compensation. This includes any expenses for traveling to and from doctors’ appointments, medical facilities or therapy.
Employees who receive Worker’s Compensation are also recovering wages that they can no longer earn due to a permanent, partial or total disability. Should the worker lose a limb, their hearing, or their sight during the accident they may receive additional funds. Finally, depending on your state, you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation if you are no longer able to work in your field.

They meet regularly to discuss regulations, changes and to exchange information in order to help empower their clients.
