Workers compensation laws were drafted to protect people’s right who were injured while acting within the scope of their employment. These laws were put in place to make sure that those employees who are injured are provided with a fixed monetary award in return for absolving the employer of liability under the tort law of negligence.
To determine whether you might need to consult an attorney concerning workers compensation issue consider the following:
- Whether you were injured at work, regardless of whose fault
- Whether you require medical treatment as a result of the injury
- Whether you are out of work as a result of the injury sustained and require weekly compensation
- Whether you have been denied workers compensation
