  • I work for a local company. I was hurt at work three days ago. I am getting medical treatment but I am not sure how all of this works. Do I have a workers compensation claim?


    Answers to workers compensation questions.If you were hurt at work, then you may have a workers compensation claim. You may have a claim even if your mistake caused your injury. Your claim may be valuable. If you are like most people, you just want to get better and get back to work.

    However, there are rules in workers compensation cases.  Some are inflexible and unforgiving.  Failure to follow these rules can destroy your claim. It can cost you a lot of money. Your employer (or really his workers compensation insurance company) knows these rules.
