Workers’ compensation enables employees, who have suffered injuries or illness at their workplace, to obtain benefits to cover medical expenses and wage loss caused by the accident. In order to successfully recover workers’ compensation, there are important steps you need to take.
Make sure you keep a copy for your own records. In general, to preserve your right under the workers’ compensation act, you must file certain forms with the industrial commission within two years of your work accident. A form 18 should be filed with the Industrial Commission and a copy served to your employer. In order to avoid missing any file deadlines, you will need to speak with a qualified attorney.
