Workers' compensation Archives

Social media use can impact workers' compensation claims

Many factors can impact a person's workers' compensation claim. One that you might not have thought about is your social media accounts. Insurance companies are always on the lookout for incidents involving fraudulent claims and exaggerations. Because of this, adjustors and investigators might try to dig up dirt on people who have valid claims.

4 basic workers' compensation benefits you might qualify for

One of the most important things to do if you are injured at work is to alert your employer. Once you do this, you can request medical care. Even if you don't think that you are seriously hurt, you should still visit a doctor since this can help you determine if there is anything that requires treatment. You should also fill out a claim for workers' compensation so that you can get the benefits that are due to you.

What injuries are covered under workers' compensation?

Workers who are injured might need medical care, which can be an expensive endeavor. When the injury is serious enough to require them to take time off of work, it can mean a sudden and unexpected decrease in income. These situations can form a perfect storm of sorts that devastates their finances.

Workers' compensation coverage should be verified

Workers count on employers to have current workers' compensation coverage. Even though workers might not think about this very often, it is necessary for employers to have this coverage so that any worker who is hurt can count on the benefits that he or she is due. Unfortunately, not all companies ensure that this is the case.

Workers' compensation doesn't have to be mystifying

People who suffer an injury at work might not be able to return to work right away. They may need medical care. In all of these cases, the person should be able to turn to the workers' compensation system for help. This program is misunderstood by some, but it does provide a very important benefits to the worker and the employer. Having a basic understanding might help you to make decisions if you ever need to use the program.

Workers' compensation decisions might need to be appealed

Workers' compensation coverage is something that most workers hope they don't have to use but most are glad that it does exist just in case they have to use it. When you are hurt at work, the last thing that you might feel like doing is try to struggle to pay your bills while you are having to deal with an increase in medical costs. Workers' compensation coverage helps prevent this from happening.

Why radiologists are at risk for neck, back and stress injuries

A new workforce study published by the American College of Radiology suggests that nearly 33 percent of all active U.S. radiologists suffer from lower back pain. Researchers suggest that the musculoskeletal injuries from which these medical professionals increasingly suffer from may be an ill-effect of the modern picture archiving and communication (PACS) era.

Don't discount your injury if it occurred at work

Some workers who are injured on the job will try to just deal with the pain and cope with the injury because they are worried about how their employer will react to the accident. This is understandable, especially for someone who counts on the job to support him or herself; however, there comes a point when trying to do this will cause more harm than good.

Points to consider when determining if an injury is compensable

Workers' compensation helps people who are injured get the medical care they need and sometimes get an income while they are off work due to the accident. There are several considerations that are used to determine if an injury is compensable.
