You don’t necessarily have to be on the premises of your workplace to have a Workers’ Compensation case. You can be anywhere as long as you were in the course of your employment when the accident occurred. For example if you are injured in a car accident while on work related business (making a delivery, running an errand or meeting customers) you are entitled to the medical care you require and compensation for lost wages from your Worker’s Compensation Insurance Company.
We will make sure your medical bills are paid and recover lost wages for the time you are out of work and that you receive the appropriate compensation for injuries. Remember, Workers’ Compensation is the law and you are entitled to the benefits.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WORKER’S COMPENSATION
DOES IT MATTER WHO IS AT FAULT?
Workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system. This means that even if your actions or those of an employer or co-worker caused your injury, you are still entitled to worker’s compensation benefits.
WHAT IF THE ACCIDENT WAS SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT?
If the accident was caused by someone other than yourself, your employer or a co-worker you are entitled to make a direct claim against the person or company that caused the accident in what is known as a “third party” claim, in which you may seek additional compensation for your pain and suffering.
