Workers' compensation Archives

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.

Injured at work? File for workers' compensation benefits

The life that you live after being hurt at work might be very different from the life you lived before the injury. When the injury was one that greatly impacted your ability to work and the chance to enjoy your life, you might find that you just aren't as happy. You might even fall into a depression.

Flight attendants face specific hazards when they are working

People who work for airlines have jobs that enable everyone else to travel around with the endless days of ground transportation that it would take to cover the same distances. The ease of travel that fliers experience isn't indicative of safe working conditions for employees. In fact, airline employees have some very serious risks that they face on a daily basis.

All workers deserve safe conditions to work in

We recently discussed some of the ways that retail workers can remain safe during the holiday season. These workers aren't the only ones who need to stay safe. Other workers, including construction workers and road workers, also need to go home safely to their family members at the end of the day.
