Workers compensation was initially implemented in the United States in 1908 to provide financial assistance to employees that had lost some or all of their earnings due to an injury or an illness that was contracted at their workplace.
Specific compensation laws vary from state to state which can include variances in the numbers of weeks that benefits are paid to injury victims and also the amount of those benefits. It's important to note that if you or someone you love have been injured at work, they may be eligible to receive compensation for those injuries which includes any costs that are associated with their treatment.
If you have had a workers compensation claim denied or terminated, or if you think you are eligible to claim compensation, contact me to discuss your case. Also, it is important to include certain language in your worker's compensation settlement if you are also applying for disability benefits. Otherwise, SSA may subtract the amount you received from worker's compensation before beginning to pay your benefits.
