If You're Hurt At WorkEmergency

 

If you have suffered a work-related injury or been diagnosed with an occupational disease or illness, we are sorry to hear it.

We hope you find the information here to be helpful in navigating the workers' compensation system to achieve the best outcome for your injury and career.

 

Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

It is important for you to know that, as an injured or ill employee, it is essential that you understand your rights and responsibilities within the workers' compensation system.

Even if you have a workers' compensation representative or attorney representing you, the more you personally know about the workers' compensation system and about the facts of your individual case, the better and more easily you will be able to get through your situation and return (as much as your injury allows) to your normal work and your normal life.

 

What You Need to Know — What You Need to Do

Most importantly, the pages presented here will give you an idea of what information will be helpful to you, and in addition, what steps you need to take in order to navigate the workers' compensation system and receive whatever medical treatment and monetary benefits for which you may be eligible.

Every workers' compensation case is different, and after reading the information here you may find you still have questions. If that is the case, please know we have staff available to assist you, so please do not hesitate to contact us, if you need further assistance.
