If You Are Injured at Work What Are You Entitled To?

The law has recognized the needs of its injured workers since 1920. The law requires every employer to obtain workers' compensation insurance (or be approved as a self-insurer) to cover claims made by their injured workers. Even the best employer, however, is not likely to tell you all you need to know. If you are injured in an accident or suffer from an occupational disease at work, the law says you are entitled to receive the following benefits:

  • Lifelong Medical Treatment: The right to medical care and treatment continues the rest of your life. This is true even if you leave your employer, or your employer is no longer in business.
  • Vocational Rehabilitation: After you recover, if your physical condition does not allow you to return to your old job, you must be provided vocational rehabilitation services.
  • Cash Award For Permanent Disability: If your accidental injury or occupational disease causes a permanent impairment, you are entitled to a cash award. The amount of the award will depend on the part of the body affected, your earnings, and the nature and extent of your disability.
  • Additional Disability Benefits If Your Condition Worsens: You can "re-visit" your claim after an initial disability award if your injury worsens.
