Who qualifies for workers’ comp benefits?
If your workers comp claim was denied for any reason, contact a Palm Beach workers compensation attorney to learn if we can assist you in successfully resubmit your claim. Our workers comp lawyers have had tremendous success in reversing claim decisions and getting clients the benefits they deserve.
Companies that have at least a handful of employees are in most instances required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in the event that there are workplace accidents resulting in injuries to their employees.
Federal agency workers fall under a different category for receiving benefits for workplace injuries. If you are a federal worker who sustained a serious injury while performing your job, contact our workers comp lawyer for more information about filing a claim and how the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can assist you.
You should qualify for workers’ comp benefits if all of the following are true:
- You are an employee (not a contractor) of the company.
- You suffered the injury while performing your job for the company.
- You were not under the influence of an unauthorized narcotic or alcohol, the use of which directly resulted in the accident that led to your injury.
- You had not initiated a physical fight or altercation which then led to your injury. (There are exceptions to this which can be discussed in confidence with your workers comp lawyer.)
Is the workers’ comp process different if a third-party caused my injury?
If you sustained a serious injury as a direct result of a third-party’s action or lack of action, your claim might be unfairly denied. For example, your company or their workers’ comp insurer may deny your claim, the reason being that the third-party or their company is responsible for your damages.
At the same time, the third-party or their company may deny liability and tell you that you must file a workers’ comp claim with your employer. When our aggressive Palm Beach workers compensation attorney reviews our case, they can determine which party or parties is responsible for compensating you for your damages. Occasionally, there is more than one party who should be held liable. Regardless of which party is responsible, your workers comp lawyer can represent your best interests and will aggressively pursue full compensation on your behalf.
