Thanks for the feedback!
Maybe. Workman's Compensation Insurance is regulated by state law. It designates what will or will not be covered by benefits. Everything I have needed they have paid for. I a…m in florida. Typically, the prescriptions must be related to the compensable injury, ie muscle relaxers for an ankle sprain will not be covered but a pain killer like vicodin will be covered.
If injured on the job is it mandatory to take a drug test and pass to be able to receive workmans comp?
Some providers will require such testing, in other cases it would be determined by the circumstances in which caused the person to be injured.
If you injure your hand on the job and the company you work for does not have workmans comp insurance will you still get paid for lost wages and if you do not regain full use of your hand what action can be taken?
Sounds like your employer is in BIG trouble. You are still entitled to worker's compensation benefits whether or not your employer had the coverage. For more info - steveshor…r.com Sounds like you need an attorney - attorney referal

If you are hurt on the job can they lay you for you to draw unemployment instead of paying you workmans comp?

An employer cannot fire you merely because you have filed a worker's compensation claim. However, you can be fired while on worker's compensation if there is just cause th…at is not related to the worker's compensation.
The short answer is... you probably won't be able to find it, ever. There is simply not enough premium collected from a short-term workers comp policy for an insurer to want t…o accept the potential cost of employee injury claims. To make this more meaningful consider this... your workers compensation policy has no specified maximum limit of coverage (don't confuse the employers liability or part II coverage) except for the settlement amounts and conditions specified by your states industrial insurance laws. The potential payouts are astronomical and can last for decades. That being said, there are types of aggregated policies, such as OCIP's, that include workers compensation as part of the entire portfolio of coverage, for one large construction project. But the premiums for these types of policies are often in the MILLIONS.
A person gets workman's comp because they are unable to work. If they get a job, investigators will get them for fraud. They will get in trouble. It's against the law to draw …benefits and have a job. A person gets WC lost time benefits because a doctor certifies him as unable to to THE JOB ON WHICH HE GOT INJURED, and no other job. Take a job within your med restrictions and all is well.
In this state you can not generally collect workman's comp pay if you are injured on a second job and still are able to work on your first job if that is your main job. Your s…econd job would be responsible for all medical bills for the injury on your second job. That would be it. To get workers comp, you must swear that you are unable to work. If you are working, you would be telling a lie under oath. Martha Stewart went to prison for less.

Yes, provided it was not an EXTENDED leave of absence.
The purpose of the workers' compensation program is to provide employees who suffer job-related injuries a form of compensation unique from taking your employer to court. An e…mployee injured on the job is guaranteed benefits regardless of who was at fault. In return for workers' compensation benefits, employees usually forfeit the right to sue their employer in court for damages for their injuries. You need to be an employee at the time of the injury and the injury must be work-related. The fact that you quit your job is not fatal to your claim provided that you meet the other requirements.
