To be covered by workers' compensation, you must be an employee and be accidentally injured while doing your job, or get sick from doing your job, like being exposed to asbestos from ripping out ceiling tiles while doing renovation work.

The applicant will receive a letter informing them that their claim has either been denied or approved. If the claim is denied the letter will include instructions on how to file an appeal. If the claim is approved, the letter will state the amount awarded, when benefit payments will commence, and o…ther pertinent information. In some cases a letter of an approved claim is sent and then additional correspondence explaining the program will follow. ( Full Answer )
Workman's Compensation Insurance is specifically for work related injuries. State laws control the way WCI is regulated, meaning the requirements that are needed to collect a claim, the amount of the claim and so forth. Not all employer's are required to participate in WCI therefore not all employee…'s would have access to the program. . In the UK an employer is responsible for injuries caused in the workplace if the employer was in some way negligent or breached other UK regulations. For example - if a workman hurt his foot due to a defective work machine - the employer would be liable to pay compensation. ( Full Answer )
Not true at all. You are entitled to have legal representation, if you so choose. The fact that you have received payments from the system would appear to me to indicate that your application has been approved. Any comments from the case worker, to you, should be discussed with his/her supervisor, t…o find out the truth of the matter. Remember, all civil servants have a boss somewhere that they have to report to, who is required to "listen to your complaints, about the case worker" They are NOT a law onto themselves, they have rules that they have to follow, too. Answer I don't disagree with the previous poster's assessment. However state's enact workman's compensation insurance laws. In some states if a worker retains legal counsel to file an appeal (or just files an appeal) the benefits can be held until a decision is made. This could possible be what the case worker was referring to, not that an attorney could not be retained; but in appeal's cases benefits can be in a manner of speaking, "frozen". Additional Information: It is illegal for an Insurance Carrier / TPA / Employer or anyone else to take punitive action against you because you filed a claim or obtained an attorney. Many states now impose additional penalties on the claim in favor of the claimant if payments are delayed. ( Full Answer )
I believe that it depends on the state you live in and how many employees you will have. In Michigan if you have more than 4 additional employees you have to have it. Answer All 50 states require Workers Comp though most if not all have exemptions. In Texas, you can select a Non-Subscription prod…uct that's similar to Comp. Most if not all states allow you to self-insure if you have enough cash to set aside. Even if you exercise an exemption, you remain liable, so make sure you have plenty of cash for work-related injury claims if you don't carry coverage. Also, even if you don't think your employee would sue, their spouse or minor children who have to get through life on your employee's reduced salary if he has a major injury, or without his salary and companionship if he dies, may present an issue. In short, yes, please carry Comp. ( Full Answer )
Eligible for compensation. Preexisting conditions that the work place acclerates or aggravates. Mental and physical strain by increased work duties or work related stress. Demands of the job and a supervisor's constant harassment. An attorney can explain what you can expect at every step of the clai…ms process. . In the UK you can receive compensation from your employer for industrial stress in the workplace. It is not easy however to prove an employer's responsibility for this so you would need to speak to a solicitor to assess your particular circumstances. ( Full Answer )

What could happen to you if you filed a Chapter 7 and then asked for a conversion to a 13 because you started getting workmens comp checks but you live off your pension funds since your umemployment?
Answer . A chapter 13 would probably be allowed if the person can present an acceptable plan of repaying creditors to the the trustee. The involved party might wish to discuss other options with a qualified attorney before making the decision to file any type of BK. Pension and disability benefi…ts are exempt from creditor garnishment. Therefore the debtor might wish to learn what property he or she owns that could be attached by creditor judgment. Most attorneys offer free or minimal fee consultation. State bar associations and the American Bar Association offer a free attorney referral service.

Answer . \nMy husband is currently on workmans comp and has been since July 2006. It took about 6 weeks before we received the first check from workmans comp. However it was back dated to the date of the injury, and paid in one lump sum. From that point we receive checks weekly.
Answer . No, but there is a Statute of Limitations as to how long you can go on WCB and when it becomes a Disibility. Go to your Labor Relations Board about this. If you have a WCB claim then you must have hurt yourself on the job obviously. WCB has all rights to any reports from your doctor rela…ted to the accident and it's always wise every month to get your doctor to write the company a note or letter explaining why you aren't back at work. ALWAYS leave a paper trail regarding your injuries to the company you work with. If WCB is still paying you then NO company legally can let you go without trying to work with you, WCB and your doctor and try to at least place you in a job in that company that you can physically handle, but, if it doesn't look like you are able to come back to work then you need to deal with Disibility Pension.. Please go onto www.google.com and go onto Workmen's Compensation Board and you'll find all sorts of information there.. Good luck Marcy. I was told by a WCB Judge that even if the employer did fire you because you were injured, it would be a very hard case to prove. ( Full Answer )

When you file a workmens comp claim do they check your credit history and do a criminal background check?
They might. If they have reason to believe you have filed a number of similar claims they may investigate you for fraud, and may investigate at random. If you have a legitimate claim, don't let this concern keep you from filing it.
If you are on workmens comp under doctors care and your employer said you were ramdom picked for drug testing do you still have to go?
Answer . Absolutely. The employer is still paying you, even if it's through workman's comp. Technically, you still work for him and are bound to the company's policies.. Answer . Yes. My Mom cut her finger really bad at work and had to get stitches. Then 2 days later a random drug test ca…me along and my Mom had to take it. She passed of course.

You should be treated like any other employee when on WC. If others do, you do. If not, I don't know why you would be singled out.
I'm actually in the same position that you are as far as workers' compensation. According to my lawyer, the settlement amount is determined by the pecentage of damage to you innjuried area and whether or not you are personally disabled to the point that you cannot provide for your family. You are se…en by (3) different doctors. One from the insurance company, one from your attorney, and last the neutral doctor. After being examined, they will then average the percentages and come up with an amount according to a legal-injury book. Then you set a date and go to court. You can either settle or demand more. The choice is yours! I hoped this helped...good Luck ( Full Answer )

Individuals and Consumers: For consumers or individuals, it is much more difficult to verify a single check because banks are being increasingly more concerned with privacy issues. A service is available to look up single checks by the routing number if you have a land line phone and are willi…ng to pay the $5 for the phone call. The number, to verify a check as of January 21, 2010 is 1-900-868-2995, and you can verify two checks at a time. If it is a cashier's check, you can contact the bank it was issued by and tell them that you need to know if a check is good. With the account information and check number, they can tell you if it is an account that is in good standing and if it has the funds to cover the amount listed on the check. Business Options: For business, services like Telecheck, BetterCheck, Certegy, CheckSystems and others can provide accurate and instant verification for most checks. Systems like Telecheck use the check writer's history and identification to gauge the likelihood that the check will be good, where networks like BetterCheck will give the account status as of that day. Guaranteed Verification: Of course, the only sure way to verify a check, is to take it to the bank that issued the check and ask them to make sure the funds are available. If you take it to the issuing bank, you can get cash for the item on the spot. This is much safer than depositing the item into your own account. If you deposit the item into your own account, you will be 100% responsible if it is returned for any reason. The depositor is responsible for the full face value of the check, plus fees and you could open yourself up to prosecution for depositing a false document in some cases. When you take it to the bank that issued the check, you can walk away with real cash for the item and there is no recourse for the bank unless you know the item is a fake. Getting Around the System - Back Door Verification: There is yet one more way to verify a check on an account and that is to have the account holder on the phone with you, call the bank and have the teller verify the account holder and listen to the verification while it is going on. If you have a check and the account holder's social security number or tax ID, you may be able to log into via the bank's telephone banking system and verify the item yourself. ( Full Answer )

Legally, an employer can terminate you for a number of things, however; it is unlawful for them to fire you for filing a work comp claim. I would suggest very strongly, that you keep great documentation of your experiences at work. If you are being harassed, job description is changed without proper… notice, etc. Many employers like to retaliate against injured workers if there is a good claim against them. I have encountered a bit of harassment on my job after getting injured on the job. It comes with the territory. But, also know that if they terminate you, it does not release their liability to pay your benefits. If you have a strong case for wrongful termination you may even be compensated for that as well. I would suggest getting a lawyer to discuss your specifics. I have heard people say that they don't want to pay an attorney fee, but for peace of mind and a better chance of settlement and medical benefits, it is way worth the small fee that they charge for being your first line of defense. I have a great attorney that is always available to me and he is extremely knowledgeable in this area. ( Full Answer )
If your disability check is mailed can your disability check be still garnished by an administrative offset?
Sure, the way payment is made doesn't change a thing.. The offset is made well before the payment is issued, by check or electronic check.
Possibly - not likely. Stroke would have to be caused by the job or the job would have to contribute to it - difficult to prove.
The law is probably many volumes, thousands of pages - and it would not be feasible to reprint the entire legal code pertaining to Comp here. You can contact the PA Bureau of Workers' Compensation at 800-482-2382 inside PA or at 717-772-4447.. TTY: 800-362-4228 (hearing & speech impaired only)
According to my source, if you have 4 or more employees, SC requires that you carry Workers' Comp (WC.) If you're exempt, check with the state to determine how to exercise the exemption option . Often employers just fail to have coverage, but there may be more to the process.. Note that an exemp…tion from carrying insurance does not equal exemption from liability. You are liable if you only have 1 employee. And if you have none, you may still want to cover yourself. Consider:. I personally think everyone should be covered by WC or an alternative, such as Occupational Accident or a self-insured plan. Even if you have health insurance, if you're injured on the job - even if it's in an auto accident on your way to the bank, if you're seriously injured and can't work for years, who will pay those health insurance premiums and lost wages? WC has lifetime medical for work-related injuries.. Occupational Accident is available in most states, and you can customize it for yourself and for any executives, partners or others that may be eligible to be excluded - or for any employee who opts out (rare.) It can work alone or in conjunction with WC. ( Full Answer )
Generally, the answer is no, if you are looking to sue your employer, and yes, if you are looking to sue an outside party. The exclusive remedy doctrine (which is one of the core principles of the workers' compensation system) states that, with a very few exceptions the workers' compensation system …is the exclusive remedy injured employees have to receive compensation for their injuries, and they may not both receive workers' compensation benefits and sue their employer. Exceptions may exist where the employer is found to have shown gross negligence that contributed to the injury.. If a party other than your employer is at fault for the injury, the injured employee would still be able to sue the responsible party while receiving benefits from your employer's workers' comp carrier. For example, if a pizza delivery driver is in a motor vehicle accident for which the other driver is at fault, he could still recover benefits from the responsible driver and/ or her auto insurance carrier, in what is known as a 3rd party suit. The workers' compensation carrier would expect to receive a share of any settlement, however, based on the medical and income benefits that they have paid on the injured workers' behalf.

Try to cash it and you will find out if it is real, however, read the small type first because by cashing the check you may be agreeing to something that is explained in the small type. This scam has been around for a long time. I am surprised you never saw it before. Technically you are allowed to …keep anything sent you through the mails unsolicited, however, there is a legal catch tied to these checks that is self explanatory if you read it carefully. The ones I've seen make cashing the check a positive step towards part of a legal agreement that does not favor you. You have to prove you are the one to who the check is made out to. If the bank gives you money ..... you are liable if the check bounces along with the charges for a bounced check. These people have legal departments that can tie you up very tight. It will cost you a lot to extract yourself from these deals as I know them. Often the offer is made through the net to avoid the mails as then it becomes a Federal offense. Most often any package sent to you will come via UPS or FEDEX to avoid the US mail. Nobody gives anything away for FREE. Red flags should go up every time you see something like that. Would you offer to do that over the net where hundreds of thousands could sign up for it in SECONDS? If you believe it, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I can offer you for very little money. Thousands of cars go over it every day and you can make a fortune collecting tolls. ( Full Answer )
Yes, FMLA can be ran concurrently with Worker's Compensation. Many companies exercise their right to do so.
I worked for the state. I did not get workers comp until all my sick leave was used up. It came from a separate outfit. I did not get 2 checks. Once I could walk and drive a car, the doctor sent me back to work.
Once your WC claim is approved and payments begin, you receive payments until released to return to work. Being in prison is irrelevant, as long as your doctor says you are still unable to work. I have paid incarcerated WC beneficiaries in several states.
In some states they can be, usually for child support liens. Sometimes if the settlement is less than a certain amount, though, it cannot be garnished.
An employer can choose to cover even independent contractors paid on 1099's. We do. The alternative is being subject to suit if the conyractor is injured while performing work. Employers CAN require in contracts that contractors carry WC on themselves.

They do, if it is suspected (or proven) that the injuries you are claiming are not job related, or if your employer was not a part of the contributing pool of employers. If you disagree there are built-in appeal mechanisms to the initial decision.
my dad has been severely hurt for 5 years now and the insurance has drawn it out to a ridiculous length of time we haven't seen a cent of a settlement
To the best of my knowledge, there is no minimum time you have to be absent before you can collect worker's compensation payments, provided you are missing work due to an injury or illness related to working your position.
