These 3 benefits make workers' compensation important

As an employee in Wisconsin, you know that you have a right to a safe work environment. You should also be aware that your employer should carry either private insurance or a workers' compensation policy in case of employees' injuries. While there are a few classes of employees who are not covered by workers' compensation in Wisconsin, like domestic servants, volunteers and some farm employees, on the whole, most people should be entitled to compensation if they're injured.

There are several benefits to receiving workers' compensation after an injury. These are just a few you may be entitled to. If your claim is denied, your attorney may be able to assist you with an appeal.

1. Medical expenses are covered

The first thing to know is that if you need medical help, you deserve to get it. Your necessary and reasonable medical bills will be covered by workers' compensation.

2. Vocational rehabilitation is provided

After an accident, you may be in a position where you're unable to return to your previous job. Maybe you can't lift the same amount of weight or lost your sight, so it's no longer possible to do your job. That's okay, and there is a solution.

Workers' compensation insurance offers vocational rehabilitation and retraining, which makes it easier to learn new skills for a job you can do. As a result, even if you're unable to return to your previous job, you may be able to obtain a new job to support yourself or your family.

3. Death benefits are provided to beneficiaries

In the sad case that you or a loved one is killed on the job, qualified beneficiaries may receive compensation for burial expenses. Additionally, they may be eligible for death benefits, like the replacement of the loved one's income following the death.

These are a few things workers' compensation can do for you and your family. If you have questions about a claim, your attorney can help.
