Workers' compensation law deals with workers' compensation, which is a state-mandated insurance program which provides compensation to employees who go through job related injuries and/or illnesses. Regardless of who's at fault, an injured employee should get workers' compensation benefits under workers' compensation law. In exchange for these benefits, an employee does not have the right to sue the employer in court.
Each state carries their own workers' compensation laws. Workers' compensation laws constantly change and you shouldn't rely on your employer to get that kind of information. Most states also have Statutes of Limitations. An employee typically has 2 years to file a claim with the workers' compensation department in their state. If an employee fails to file the claim within that time limit, they may be denied some or all benefits.
If you were involved in a work place injury, an experienced workers' compensation lawyer can help evaluate your case. A lawyer can make sure that your rights as an employee are fully protected. A workers' compensation lawyer can research the law, interview witnesses, collect records, ad plan an appropriate legal strategy so that you can get fair recovery.
