Workers' Compensation Archives

Being 'tough' doesn't have to mean skipping workers' comp

Wisconsin has a proud tradition of hard work. Our people don't shy away from tough jobs. Whether they are farmers, loggers, brewers or workers at any other job where calluses and sweat stains are a badge of honor, Wisconsinites are known for their ability to handle demanding work and tough conditions.

Opioid Use After a Work Injury: How Does Wisconsin Rank?

It seems that nearly every day there is a news story that talks about the opioid epidemic that’s making its way throughout the United States. While there are a variety of reasons for the rise of opioid use in recent decades, one often overlooked area where opioid use is found is in post-work injury care.

Handle workers' compensation issues very carefully

There are many things that can impact a workers' compensation claim. As we discussed in a recent post, technology is one of these. When you file for workers' compensation, you have to think about how things might appear. If you claim that you can't go to work because of a back injury, you probably shouldn't go to the gym and lift heavy weights.

Workers' compensation claims must be started quickly

Workers who are hurt on the job might feel like they are facing an uphill battle. The medical bills and loss of income can lead to financial devastation. This makes it hard to focus on overcoming the injury. This comes at a time when medical bills might be rolling in from the injury and your regular bills are continuing.

Know the basics of workers' compensation if you get hurt at work

Workers in Wisconsin have regulations and laws that help to keep them safe when they work. Even if they are injured, they have the protection of the workers' compensation program to help out. If you are injured at work, or even if you suffer a work-related illness, you might choose to file for workers' compensation.
