Workers' Compensation, also known as Workman's Comp, is a state-mandated insurance program that provides compensation to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses.
Most employees are covered under Workers’ Compensation law. Workers’ Compensation covers both injuries sustained at work and illnesses suffered from long-term exposure to hazardous or strenuous conditions.
If you are injured on the job, it's in your best interests to contact an attorney who specializes in Workers’ Compensation cases, especially if you feel your claim may be challenged by the insurance company or by your employer. Many attorneys offer free consultations and some are even required by the state to operate on a contingency basis (you won’t pay attorney's fees unless you obtain a favorable settlement).
An essential part of this process is the independent medical examination (IME) in which a doctor is chosen by the insurance company. This examination helps the insurance company form its compensation offer. You may need to see a pain management specialist for effective treatments to restore your quality of life before you can return to the workplace.
Here is a list of the most common work injuries:
