Can you appeal a denied claim?
Absolutely. Workers’ compensation insurance companies often deny claims initially. But a determined attorney can help you challenge a denied claim.
What should you do after suffering an injury or work-related illness?
There are some basic actions needed after getting hurt. Getting prompt, competent medical attention is key. It is also important to report the injury to your employer.
What if your immigration status is undocumented? Can you still get workers’ comp?
Generally, yes. Undocumented workers are eligible for workers’ comp benefits.
What if you are not sure whether you are a contractor or an employee who is eligible for workers’ comp coverage?
This can be a tricky issue in the law. Employees are generally eligible for workers’ comp, but contractors are not. Talk with an attorney who can explain your rights and options.
