Our experienced lawyers are able to determine your eligibility for a claim. And, whether you should appeal in case your claim is denied.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Benefits that are typically available under workers’ compensation include:
The injured worker receives proper medical care so as to resume work within the shortest time possible.
These benefits are aimed at replacing any lost wages of an employee due to a work-related injury that caused disability. The disability benefits may not be provided unless the particular disability extends past a specified waiting period.
Vocational rehabilitation may be provided to injured employees who are no longer able to carry out their previous jobs. Psychological therapy can also be provided to cater for work-related mental injuries.
The death of an employee following a work-related injury may result in the provision of death benefits to their next of kin.
Processing of a Workers’ Compensation Claim
In order to receive the workers’ compensation benefits after a work-related injury, you must adhere to the correct claim process. Which includes the following guidelines:
Reporting the injury to your employer within the shortest time
The initial step of making a workers’ compensation claim is first reporting the work-related injury to your employer. Which should be done within the shortest time possible to prevent the insurance company from denying your claim.
Your employer should provide you with the necessary paperwork
After being notified about your injury, your employer should avail to you:
Proceeding to file the claim
Once your employer submits your paperwork to the insurance carrier of the workers’ compensation, your claim will have officially been filed. Your doctor will also be required to mail a report on your medical condition.
The claim is either approved or denied by the insurer
After your claim has been filed, the insurance company makes a determination concerning it. If the insurer contacts you with payment details, your claim will be approved. It may, however, be denied if the insurer finds it unfit for workers’ compensation benefits. Our skilled Mohave County workers’ compensation lawyers are of absolute importance in this case. If you are unsatisfied with the insurer’s offer, we can help you pursue a larger settlement. Also, we can appeal your claim denial or request the insurer to review the decision.
