It never hurts to ask these workers’ compensation questions

Have you or a loved one been injured on the job? Are you wondering what it will take to receive workers' compensation benefits? If you find yourself in this situation, it's imperative to do two things:

-- Get answers to all workers' compensation question that are on your mind.

-- Don't delay in making a claim.

Determining whether you are covered by a workers' compensation policy is not always as simple as it sounds. Generally speaking, there are two factors that determine if you're in position to receive benefits.

First off, you need to be an employee of the company. Secondly, your injury must have occurred as the result of your employment.

If you find that both of these things are true, you may be in position to file a claim for benefits.

Some of the most important questions to address include:

-- Who was responsible for the accident?

-- Did you receive immediate medical attention?

-- For how long are you able to receive workers' compensation benefits?

-- Can an employer argue that you are not entitled to benefits?

-- Can an employer retaliate against a person for making a claim?

Some of these questions have a simple answer. For example, employers are not permitted to retaliate against an employee for making a claim.

Conversely, other questions depend on your particular situation.

If you were denied for workers' compensation benefits, it's time to learn more about the reason. You may be able to file an appeal with the idea of having the decision overturned and immediately receiving the benefits you deserve.
