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.

Technology is impact workers' compensation claims for some worker

Workers who are injured in accidents on the job usually face an uphill battle of sorts. These workers usually have to fight the workers' compensation system to get the compensation they need just live a normal life.

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.

If you are injured at work, or even if you suffer a work-related illness, you might choose to file for workers' compensation.

Wisconsin medical facility cited for asbestos violations

There are federal standards that businesses must follow when dealing with a building that is known to contain asbestos. In a recent development, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited a health care facility for violations that exposed maintenance workers to asbestos when they worked in the facility.

What workers' compensation injuries are covered by the law?

Wisconsin workers' compensation law offers the following definition of an "injury": Any physical or mental harm that is caused because of a workplace accident or disease, which includes accidental damage to dental appliances, artificial limbs and teeth. This article will discuss in detail the types and varieties of injuries covered by the law in this respect:

How injuries are connected to employment

For those seeking workers' compensation payments, it is clear that the injury has to be connected to the employment in some fashion. In fact, employers will sometimes counter claims if they think a person was really injured at home and is only saying it happened at work to get this compensation. There are a few ways that employees can show that their injures wouldn't have happened if not for their jobs.

What you can do if you're hurt on the job

Wisconsin workers are covered by the workers' compensation laws in the state from the first day of employment, in most cases.
