Obtaining Workers Compensation Benefits

The first step you should do after an accident, injury or work-related illness is notify an employer immediately. You should be given or mailed a claim form to begin the Workers compensation process. After turning in the claim form, it will be forwarded to your insurance company. You should receive a letter with 14 days from the insurance company giving you the status of your claim form. Your claim will be accepted or denied. You may need to submit an independent medical examination. Always notify your Carmel Workers compensation lawyer with all steps associated with your claim.
The main compensation is medical treatment and wage replacement benefits.

Workers compensation benefits entitle you to have your medical treatment paid for by your employer. Most cases you can choose your doctor, in some cases your employer may select a doctor. If you are unsatisfied with the doctor, your Carmel Workers compensation lawyer can help you get the treatment you deserve.

You are entitled to two-thirds of your wages for up to two years while recovering from a temporary disability. If you are unable to return to work, you may have the right to receive permanent disability benefits.

You can also receive between $4,000 to $10,000 in supplemental vouchers to help you obtain proper job training for another position. The amount for vouchers depends upon your disability rating.

You can also be eligible for expenses such as medication, rehabilitation, and mileage. In the event a worker has died from a work-related illness or injury, the family members may be entitled to death benefits.
