Common Questions about Workers' Compensation
Frequently Asked Questions
Many people know that workers’ compensation is an insurance program that is designed to provide protection for workers injured on the job. However, workers’ compensation also overs sickness that is related to work, as well as chronic health issues that are associated with specific types of work.
The benefit for employers is that if they offer workers’ compensation, which is required by law in most areas, they cannot be sued by employees for negligence in the event of injury or illness.
While each claim is different, most claims are processed within four to eight weeks of filing. However, these claims can also be denied, or the worker may not accept the settlement as fair, which then creates the additional time required for the appeals process.
It is important to understand the timeline for filing a workers’ compensation claim. In most cases, the injured employee must report the incident to the direct supervisor or designated individual within 30 days of the event. Then, there will be the requirement to complete a workers’ compensation form for the claim as well as meet with an approved doctor in the network to start the process.
If you are injured on the job or have a job-related illness, workers’ compensation claims provide financial compensation for medical expenses and lost wages during treatment and recovery.
A minimum premium is the price for writing a workers’ compensation policy for a business. This is based on the payroll for the business, and it is the most basic and limiting type of policy.
It is essential for an employee to complete all workers’ compensation forms without any omissions. This includes attending doctor’s appointments and ensuring the required medical documents are submitted with the claim to provide information on the injury or illness.
