Are you struggling to understand the Workers’ Compensation process in Monroe? Dealing with a potentially life changing injury or illness in addition to jumping through legal hoops can be extremely stressful. Some employers are considerate and willing to work with you, while other situations may require the services of a lawyer. Take some time to consider the following common questions and answers.
What do I do if I’m injured on the job?
In most cases, you won’t need to hire a workers’ compensation attorney right away. First, report the injury to your supervisor and request to see a doctor. You’ll also need to request, complete and submit the right paperwork. The process can’t begin until after you’ve provided the necessary documentation to your employer.
Do I have to see a specific doctor?
The answer to this question varies depending on where you work. Some states require seeing the company doctor for a certain period of time; others allow you to seek medical treatment from the doctor of your choice. Take time to figure this out when reporting the injury.
What benefits am I entitled to?
Your benefits will depend on the situation, but could include medical treatment, disability payments, a permanent disability settlement or vocational retraining. A workers’ compensation attorney can help you determine which you are entitled to.
