Workers' Compensation Insurance is mandatory for all employers to carry and pay for in all states. (Exceptions for self-insured employers are made; this is anothe…r whole topic). Employees are NEVER required to pay any part of the premium for this coverage. It is the EMPLOYER that is 'covered' and the purpose is to protect employers from damages awarded in lawsuits that could conceivably put them out of business. Most workers' compensation laws, in each state, went into effect in the early 1800's, during the industrial revolution, when employees were suffering serious injuries and either 1.) receiving NO compensation at all, or 2.) being awarded compensation via the court systems which generally crippled the employers, thereby eliminating jobs and income for entire companies. States realized that provisions needed to be made that would protect the injured workers and their families, but enable employers to continue operating and providing employment and income. Each state has a department, bureau, commission, etc., that regulates the laws pertaining to workers' compensation. Each state also has a 'state fund', which will provide insurance coverage to employers, for a premium. Forty-eight of the states also have competition with private insurers; three states have 'exclusive funds', meaning only the 'state fund' provides WC coverage: Ohio, Washington, and West Virginia. This means that employers MUST purchase their coverage from the state fund or be self-insured. (They must, of course, show due diligence, showing themselves financially able to be self-insured.)
If you are on Texas Workmen's Comp what does it have to do with your taxes on the return and are you going to have to pay taxes on it?
Answer WCI is taxable and it is claimed as income with no special provisions for reduced percentage unless the person who is receiving the benefits has bee…n declared permanently disabled.
If you do not carry workmens comp insurance can a company you are doing work for charge you for workmen's comp insurance?
Your doctor's word and reports to WCB should be good enough, and say "NO!" She has a right to contact your doctor on reports and discussions about your case only related… to the injury you have and nothing more! I would suggest that you speak with your doctor about this and you can do this over the phone. His office ass't may even know. You can also go onto www.Workmen's Compensation Board in the State of ________ and get all the information and rules and regulations you want. I suggest you do this before you ruffle this gal's feathers. Good luck Marcy Yes, because of the protection of HIPAA laws. However, unless the physician is approved by the WCI provider the claim can be legally denied if sufficient supportable evidence of injury is not provided. In other words, a visit to the neighborhood chiropractor is not going to be deemed adequate medical proof for establishing a valid claim. Short answer: no, but be sure to express in front of her, to the doctor, the amount of pain you are experiencing and any effects of the drugs you may be taking, etc. etc. She is just there to record and "move the process" possibly to a new doctor. In my case, the nurse only attended one of these appointments. Answer In Washington State you must comply with the Nurse Case Manager assigned to your claim. If not this is considered being "non compliant" and benefits can be suspended.
If you use workmen's comp for an injury due to a fall at work will you ever be able to go back to your regular insurance for any back problems and be covered?
Maybe - it depends on the form (contract language) in your regular health insurance policy, and the nature of your future back problems. Since Comp has lifetime medical benefi…ts for on-the-job injuries (provided you placed your claim in a timely manner, etc.) you shouldn't need to access your own health coverage for back problems related to your injury. However, if you don't have a group plan, there's a chance your health insurer will exclude your back from claims, even if a future problem is unrelated.

You have developed arthritis as a result of continual work on the computer consequently you had to have surgery on your hand is this a work related injury should workmens comp be filed?
Yes. Under the Workers Comp Statute - at least in Michigan, any condition that is caused by, accelerated, or aggrevated by your employment, is compensible. You merely ha…ve to have a doctor indicate that your condition is a work related repetitive action injury. If your employer won't pay you workers comp benefits, you can initiate a claim against him. You are entitled to time lost from work, all out-of-pocket medical expenses, and mileage to and from your doctor's appointments.
will i recieve a settlement after having back surgery workers comp
After you receive workmen's comp and are released to go back to work but feel you are not the same are you entitled to any more comp benefits?
Hi~ Your WC doctor determines the difference (if any) of where you were before the injury vs. after completing treatment for your injury. (I believe this is called …the PPI). An attorney includes this figure within the settlement.
Texas is the only voluntary Comp state. But employers remain liable for the workers' injuries and should opt out correctly if they choose to opt out - according to the s…tate rules, filing their decision with the state and posting the proper notice to employees. Employers in all states need to realize they remain liable if they don't have coverage, and that their employees and their employees' families can sue them. Employees includes subcontractors, whether you're a homeowner using uninsured subcontractors or a large corporation.
If your company already knows about the incident that caused this then you can. I'm not sure if you can if it has yet to be reported.
yes you can. as long as the injury was obtained while working. Usually in a repetitive motion job.
Can you still file for workman comp if you return to work after surgery for carpal tunnel and am unable to work?
Yes, you have three years to file for workers' compensation in Pennsylvania. After you return to work after receiving workers' compensation, you have, at least, 9.6 years …to re-open the wage loss claim. The medical claim is for life.
