Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a crucial area of law designed to provide financial assistance and support to employees who have been injured or become ill as a result of their work. At Gambini Law, our skilled attorneys are committed to helping you understand and navigate the complexities of workers’ compensation claims, ensuring you receive the benefits you are entitled to under the law.

What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides medical care, wage replacement, and other benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. This system is in place to protect both employees and employers, as it ensures injured workers receive support while also shielding employers from potential lawsuits.

Eligibility for Workers' Compensation

To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. You must be an employee of the company or organization.
  2. The injury or illness must have occurred within the scope of your employment.
  3. The injury or illness must be directly related to your work activities or environment.

Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits

Workers’ compensation benefits can include:

  1. Medical benefits: Coverage for necessary medical treatment related to your work injury or illness.
  2. Temporary disability benefits: Compensation for a portion of your lost wages while you are unable to work due to your injury or illness.
  3. Permanent disability benefits: Compensation for any permanent physical or mental impairments resulting from your work injury or illness.
  4. Vocational rehabilitation: Support to help you return to work or retrain for a new job if you are unable to perform your previous job duties.
  5. Death benefits: Compensation for the surviving family members of a worker who dies as a result of a work-related injury or illness.

Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim

If you believe you’re eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, it’s essential to take the following steps:

  1. Report your injury or illness to your employer as soon as possible, typically within 30 days.
  2. Seek medical treatment and follow your healthcare provider’s recommendations.
  3. File a formal workers’ compensation claim with your employer or the appropriate state agency.
  4. Consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to protect your rights and ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
