When you are injured in an accident at work or suffer from an occupational disease, you are entitled to various benefits through the workers compensation system, commonly referred to as work comp. Some workers’ compensation benefits can include reimbursement of lost wages, permanent disability payments and medical treatment.
Once a work injury occurs, the injured worker should notify a supervisor and give the employer a completed DWC-1 Claim Form
. This will trigger the workers compensation insurer’s obligation to begin processing your claim. Once a workers’ compensation claim is open, a variety of variables will determine what procedures are necessary. Contact us
for a consultation to determine how we can help you through the workers’ compensation process.
