Don't give up if your workers' comp claim is denied

Whether your job is inherently dangerous, such as construction, or you have a relatively low-risk occupation, you may find some comfort in knowing your employer carries workers' compensation insurance. This insurance offers a variety of benefits for those who suffer injuries in the course of their duties at work. If you have an accident on the job or develop a work-related illness, you may receive funds to cover a portion of your lost wages, medical expenses and other things you may need to recover and get back to work.

Safety authorities require strict protocols to mitigate these workplace injury hazards.
