Who will pay for my lost wages and hospital bills?

Posted in and tagged by Ken Wilhelm

All injured workers have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim when they have suffered a job-related injury. A successful workers’ compensation claim will result in money for all of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. It will not, however, cover non-economic losses such as pain and suffering, or adequately cover serious permanent injuries or large loss of earnings claims etc. For that type of coverage, you may have to file a lawsuit. In general workers’ compensation only covers a small amount of what you may be entitled to.
