Workers' Compensation Archives

Did you get fired from a job because of a workers' comp claim?

You work hard, for years, to build a career and support yourself. Then, one day, something goes wrong. Maybe you got startled when lifting something, causing a back injury. Maybe equipment malfunctioned, resulting in broken bones and soft tissue injuries. Whatever the situation, if you got hurt because of a workplace accident, you should be receiving workers' compensation. Unfortunately, some employers don't always comply with the law. They may refuse to submit accident reports and claims that have to do with your injuries. Sometimes they fire whoever asks for workers' compensation.

Workers' comp is for more than just accident injuries

Many people think about workers' compensation benefits as coverage in case of an injury. This is one of the possible types of issues that can be covered under a workers' compensation claim. Other issues are also compensable as long as they meet the requirements for coverage.

Workers' Compensation FAQs

Not content to sit in an office cube typing on a computer all day, you enjoy the physical aspects of your job. Sure, what you do is demanding, but you appreciate that you have something to show for your effort at day's end. You can't complain because the pay is good and your coworkers know how to have a fun time. Unlike other individuals, you don't take your work home with you.
