On my first Workers compensation hearing 06 /14/2013 my attorney informed me that insurance carrier for my employer fail for bankruptcy and this is the reason I cannot collect any compensation. I was outside of courtroom and my attorney speak to the judge about my case .later he come to me and told me the judge will give me another insurance for my workers compensation claim.the next hearing will be on August with a new insurance carrier. I am not sure that I understand everything wright. Does anybody has a similar situation with insurance bankruptcy issue in the past ? What happen to my workers compensation claim ?
There are many types of personal injuries for which financial damages can be awarded, including physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.
Employees can sue for damages if they’ve suffered work-related injuries. These lawsuits are separate from workers’ compensation and cover more kinds of injury.
