When are workers' compensation benefits available?

Knowing when workers' compensation benefits may be available is important for workers who have been injured on the job. Injured workers likely have a variety of questions associated with the availability of workers' compensation benefits.

In general, workers' compensation benefits help injured workers with the costs of the medical care they need during the recovery process and the lost earnings they suffer while they are recovering from the work-related injury they have suffered. Some injuries that workers may be able to recover workers' compensation benefits for include carpal tunnel syndrome or injuries suffered in a fall, for example.

To receive benefits, the worker must be injured during the course of employment. Injuries that may warrant workers' compensation benefits are generally those that occur at the workplace but can also extend to other situations in some circumstances so it is important to be familiar with what those are. The exact nature of the benefits can vary by state and who is covered can also vary so there is lots to know related to workers' compensation benefits.

Some examples of workers who may be eligible to receive benefits include domestic workers, agricultural workers, seasonal workers and undocumented workers in some instances. Because workers' compensation benefits can get complex and a hurry, and can be a vital life line for many injured workers and their families, it is an important set of benefits to understand. Injured workers should keep in mind that workers' compensation benefits can help workers and their families through a workplace accident and its aftermath.
