Knowledge is Gold re: Worker’s Compensation Resources

cw31Whenever you have need of worker’s compensation coverage, it is too late to become familiar with your state’s laws, mandates and resources. The best prevention of accidents in the workplace, of course, is OSHA compliance, and while most employers abide by OSHA requirements, there are always some who try to circumvent the safety association.

Familiarize Yourself Before Need to Know
Once an accident has happened, the individual state laws, statutes and Workers Compensation mandates lock into place. Each state has a Workers Compensation Department that oversees their unique state regulations. Workers do have the advisements of their trade unions for a resource, but more information should be at the employee’s disposal:

  • Workers’ Compensation State Resource Guide
  • Workers’ Compensation Dept of Resident State
  • Private Agency Resource

The internet provides access to APTA’s physical therapy website to Download the Workers’ Compensation State Resource Guide. Availing yourself of this information will solve many problems before they raise their heads in your workers’ compensation claim.

It is always wise to contact your individual state’s department overviewing workers’ compensation claims. They have a professional team of highly credentialed, respected and valuable assistants to provide you with required forms, details for completion of all required forms and answers to any other questions or needs.

It is difficult to acquire your resource information after you have sustained injuries on the workplace or become ill due to the workplace. Your medical condition may be severe enough that you simply cannot do the red tape snipping your case requires, and in any case, your stamina and anxiety will be a depleting combination to overcome, while your resource has professionals to assist you.

Forms, State Laws, and Frequently Asked Questions
You have a right, as an employee, to the requirements necessary for filing a successful workers’ compensation claim in your state. As your claim evolves, you will have questions to which an accredited resource can provide answers quickly and clearly. Legal representation by a law firm specializing in workers’ compensation might be considered by you as injured employee, but is not always necessary if your resource is fully accredited and providing your needs.

In 2012 a private resource was established for the explicit purpose of simplifying workers’ compensation filing for employees, Claimwire. Contact them immediately upon an accident at your work or illness you developed due to your work. They have a professional team of highly credentialed, respected and valuable assistants to provide you with required forms, details for completion of all required forms and answers to any other questions or needs.
Fault is not an issue for claim filing and exercising the workers’ compensation laws of your state.
