Laws passed by the state require that your employer, or your employer's insurance
company, compensate you, or your family, for injuries or death that may occur
while you are working. You may be entitled to:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work.
- Payment of your medical expenses.
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury.
What should I do if I am injured?
You should report the injury immediately to your employer. If you cannot reach
an agreement with your employer or their insurance carrier, as to what benefits
or medical expense payments you are entitled to, you can file your claim with
the Industrial Commission.
