Workers Compensation is an insurance policy that is compulsory for most employers. If you are injured or become sick in the course of your work, it will help your employer to cover any necessary medical expenses, loss of earnings, rehabilitation costs and, in some instance, compensation for permanent impairment. Workplace injuries can have a serious, life-changing impact and in some cases they can affect your future earning potential. Given that there are strict deadlines relating to compensation claims, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible following your injury so that you know whether you are entitled to make a claim.
Even if your employer is uninsured, you may still be entitled to apply for workers' compensation benefits and pursue a claim if you have been injured in the course of your employment.
