Every worker is supposed to be protected by workers’ compensation insurance, which provides compensation for medical bills and lost wages if you are injured on the job.
It does not matter how long you have worked for a company or what kind of company you work for — every company is required to have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover the needs of injured workers.
Even if you are an undocumented worker — you have an absolute legal right to workers’ compensation if you are injured on the job.
There are some cases when the workers’ compensation system functions as it should. You get hurt, you apply for workers’ compensation, and you receive the proper amount of compensation.
However, in many cases, it is a good idea to get advice from a workers’ compensation attorney immediately after your injury if:
