Workers’ Compensation FAQ

As an employee injured on the job, it is crucial you receive the benefits necessary to survive this painful time. Navigating the legal complexities of your workers’ compensation claim is best achieved with the guidance of an experienced and skilled attorney such as ours at The Warlick Firm, PC.

Our legal team expands on the most frequently asked questions of workers’ compensation, including:

  • What should I do if I’m injured at work? Immediately after your injury or accident, you must notify your employer. Failing to do so may affect your claim.
  • How much is my case worth? If the injury is minor, your settlement may not extend beyond your medical expenses and lost wages. If the injury is severe or permanent, the settlement will include compensation to reflect that.
  • Can I be fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim? Your employer is not allowed to retaliate in any way, including termination or demotion.
  • Are all work-related injuries covered by workers’ compensation? Injured employees are not covered under every circumstance including if the employee was intoxicated, committing a serious crime, violating company policy, or the injury was self-inflicted.
  • Can I get compensation for my pain and suffering? Unfortunately, pain and suffering are punitive damages and are excluded from workers’ compensation.
  • What if my employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance? It is illegal for your employer not to carry the necessary insurance. Your employer may be sanctioned for failing to uphold state laws.
