Workers' CompensationEvery employer with more than about three employees needs to offer its employees workers' compensation.

You may have to go to a company doctor and get that person's opinion about what your injuries are and when you can return to work. The insurance company investigates the matter and decides whether you will receive compensation for your injury. You may receive a denial on your claim. A reputable injury attorney can help you appeal the decision. Your other option when you receive a work injury is to examine the case for personal injury elements and then hire an attorney to represent you in that type of matter instead.
