Four qualifying factors for workers’ compensation claims
The workers’ compensation benefits program is designed to sustain the financial needs of individuals who have been injured while doing their jobs. While a majority of companies provide such coverage to their employees, it is important for claimants to consider the following before filing a claim:
- Whether your company provides workers’ compensation coverage
- If your injury was sustained in the workplace or while performing work-related duties
- How to provide as much information regarding the injury as possible
- If a personal injury lawsuit may be more appropriate than a workers’ comp claim
Fully considering the above factors before applying for your workers’ compensation benefits will be an essential part of filing a successful claim that can help you recover from your workplace injury.
