Workers Compensation Electrician Injury Claims
If you are an electrician or utility worker who has suffered an injury at work, you are typically covered under your employer's workers’ compensation coverage. Electrician and utility workers suffer some of the most devastating injuries one could imagine including, brain injuries, spinal cord injures, neck injuries, back injuries, amputations, electrocutions and burns, broken bones, and toxic exposure.
Available Workers’ Comp Benefits
In order to receive benefits, you may be required to submit to a physical examination by your employer's company doctor. After verifying and determining the scope and nature of your injuries, you should receive benefits covering your medical expenses and lost wages. However, an injured employee may be denied workers' compensation benefits.
Protecting Your Rights Begins with Understanding Them
While most employers are willing to help injured workers take advantage of the benefits owed them, others cannot be counted on to provide employees with accurate, thorough information concerning their rights. Sometimes, employers attempt to reduce their costs by either convincing an injured worker to return to work early or not to file a claim.
