There are different types of work accidents, and they could be temporary or permanent. The most common work accident is various types of cuts, whether because of overworking or due to carrying out a specific task. Another common type of accident is slips and falls. It doesn’t matter if you fell inside or outside of the business; if the accident happened during work hours, you can be financially compensated. If you have suffered an amputation because of your work, you can receive a permanent settlement, depending on the particular case. Another type of accident that the insurance policy covers in full is burns. Finally, if any of your bones has been broken or if you have permanent discomfort in some part of your body, you can receive therapy to help you fully recover.
You can receive different types of compensation depending on whether the accident is minor or resulting in permanent pain.

Any worker who has an accident can be granted benefits. It doesn’t matter who caused the accident: by law, you deserve benefits. However, there are some legal restrictions. The first restriction is if you were to have an accident after being warned. For example, if you were under the influence of alcohol and were told that a product or piece of equipment must be handled carefully, you wouldn’t qualify for compensation for an accident. Restrictions also apply if you did not use safety equipment in a situation where you were responsible to do so under company guidelines. Workers’ compensation benefits would not apply in any of these cases.
If you are applying for workers’ compensation for an accident, there is one requirement that you absolutely must fulfill by law: the accident must have taken place at work or on the way to work. If this is the case, Grupo MedLegal will not only assign you a lawyer specializing in work-related accidents but will also offer you high-quality medical assistance.
