Workers Compensation Benefits

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2010 there were 3,063,400 recordable cases of nonfatal injuries and illnesses in the private industry alone. Injuries and illnesses at work seem to be inevitable even with all the safety regulations in place by State and Federal administrators.

In order to provide assistance to all those workers and their families who do get injured or sick at work, the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs oversees four major disability compensation programs which provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits to certain workers or their dependents who experience work-related injury or occupational disease.

By definition “workers' compensation is a form of insurance, which provides wage replacement, and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of their employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue his or her employer for negligence.” Due to the nature of the workers’ compensation laws, all to frequently workers do not receive the actual amount of compensation given the damages caused from a given accident.

Workers’ compensation claim is meant to provide lifetime medical treatment to those injured on the job; it also compensates the injured for mileage back and forth to doctor’s appointments. However, it is imperative that a workers’ compensation claim be filed within two years from the date of injury; it is also imperative that an injured worker who is unable to return to work maintains set appointments with their doctors so as to confirm they are out of work due to the work-related injury.

In the state of New York an employee is not allowed to sue the employing company for the costs of getting injured on the job. A lawsuit filed by the employee against someone that is not their employer is one way of logically getting rightful benefits for getting hurt while at work. Aside from workers compensation, one may be eligible to receive other reimbursement based on their condition and family situation.
