When Is Your Employer Responsible For Your Injuries?

Most people who come to our office after a workplace injury are unsure about if they have a claim. If they do, they are concerned about how to pursue their compensation and if claiming it will affect their future job prospects. Here is what you should know about the law:

  • If you are injured at work in the course of your job duties, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation support.
  • Workers’ compensation and injury support can provide for your medical bills, time away from work and other expenses.
  • Your employer does not have to break a law or violate a regulation for you to claim this support.
  • If you pursue compensation, your employer cannot hold that claim against you in the future.

Workers’ compensation is a necessary worker protection. It exists to keep you safe and to help your employer do the right thing when you are injured at work.
