How do you obtain workers compensation?
Quite often, in matters where there is no dispute, it is simply a matter of filling out a form with the employer and you will be paid weekly compensation benefits and medical expenses by the worker's compensation insurer.
However, the worker's compensation insurer does not have to voluntarily make any payment to you with the respect to lump sum payments for permanent impairment on your body. Often a dispute arises between the worker's compensation insurer and the injured worker as to whether the worker is entitled to any workers compensation benefits at all. If this should happen to you, you need to obtain expert legal advice from a Solicitor urgently.
