Laws passed by the state require that your employer, or your employer’s insurance company, compensate you, or your family, for injuries or death that may occur while you are working. You may be entitled to:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work.
- Payment of your medical expenses.
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury.
You should report the injury immediately to your employer. If you cannot reach an agreement with your employer or their insurance carrier, as to what benefits or medical expense payments you are entitled to, you can file your claim with the Industrial Commission.
