If you were injured on the job, had an existing medical condition get worse because of your employment or developed a work-related illness, you are covered by workers' compensation, but are you receiving all the benefits you should?

Common Workers' Compensation Disputes
An employer or the employer's insurance company may fight the employee and deny the workers' compensation claim, or they may pay a smaller portion than they should. These are some of the common issues that lead to disputes:
- The insurer denies the claim and disputes that the injury or illness is related to work.
- The insurer disputes the extent of the workers' injuries.
- The insurer does not pay for all of the treatments the worker believes it should cover.
- The insurer does not pay the amount that it should for a full or partial disability.
Were Your Injuries Caused by Someone Outside the Company?
If you were injured on the job because of the actions of a third party, you may be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit in addition to seeking workers' compensation. For example, if you were injured while using machinery that was defective, or if you were involved in a car accident while driving for work, you may be able to file this type of suit.
