All businesses and employers are obligated to protect their employees, if the employee is following regulations. By law, if an employee suffers an accident or injury while performing his or her job duties, the company must provide complete coverage that will ensure compensation. This is established by the Workers’ Compensation Act.
Within the category of labor compensation, any type of physical problem or illness caused by work can be included. It doesn’t matter if you were responsible for it or not. In addition to receiving a percentage of salary, the affected person could receive benefits for life.
Labor compensation cases can only be resolved by a workers’ compensation judge in the Court of Appeals.
But, who is covered? First, we should differentiate between an employee (covered by insurance) and an independent contractor (not covered by insurance). If you are hired by a company, they are obligated to cover any injury or accident that occurs while on the job; therefore, you have the right to a labor compensation lawyer.
One of our characteristics is the type of clients we serve. For many years, we have been offering solutions to the Latino community in the United States, and we are proud to say that we are the preferred firm among them. There are some types of injuries not provided for within the coverage that the company provides to the worker:
- An employee attempting to harm himself or another person.
- An injury resulting from a voluntary sporting event, outside of work.
The most important thing to remember is that as soon as the accident or physical problem happens, the worker should inform the company about it: this is the only way you will be able to access your compensation benefits by law. Each state has different variations of this law; however, each of them covers three important bylaws:

Complete coverage of expenses occasioned by the accident
Every company is obligated to provide a labor compensation lawyer if you have an accident or injury or have physical problems related to your current employment. You could receive complete payment for medical care and any surgical operation, as well as the cost of doctor’s honorariums or services received from any health provider. You will be covered for any expense related to: medications, rehabilitation, psychological consultations, hospital treatment, and even supporting devices. All medical diagnoses should be from the same state in which you suffered the accident, problem, or injury. This is the only way you will be able to obtain complete coverage. Each state has its own labor compensation laws. It’s important to be informed and review the regulations from your state. There are different variations in the law concerning workers’ compensation; some changes are very specific to particular types of cases. Also, if you work in the United States, you could acquire a workers’ compensation lawyer for anything related to: medication, hospital treatment, psychological consultations, supporting devices and rehabilitation, among other things. It can’t be emphasized enough that it is your obligation to get a medical diagnosis from the same state in which the accident or injury occurred, since each state has its own regulations.
