In the state of Idaho, workers or employees who were injured on the job are entitled to financial compensation. This holds true even if the worker was negligent or at fault for the accident having occurred. As long as the accident occurred while on duty then the employee will be entitled to receive compensation.
Challenges in filing and receiving your workers compensation benefits
We must admit that there have been several instances where workers have tried to file frivolous or fraudulent workers compensation claims so as to receive easy money without having to work for it.
This is concrete reason for employers to be wary of every workers compensation claim that they receive. However, it does not warrant the unreasonable denial of legitimate workers compensation claims without any sound reason, which is what happens too much of the time.
If you have had your workers compensation claim denied then you must know that you can appeal the denial and have it overturned. All you need is a helping hand from a friendly, hard working, and canny legal representative and you are at the right place to find one.
Our team of legal pros is well experienced in handling a variety of workers comp benefits and claims. They have been able to successfully help thousands of injured workers receive benefits for damages resulting from their workplace related accident.
Different types of benefits available through a worker’s compensation claim
What is crucial to note when it comes to workers compensation claims is the fact that these claims and the benefits that they entail will not serve to compensate injured or disabled workers for non-economic losses. For example, damages such as:
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish
- loss of consortium
- loss of enjoyment of life
……are not things you can seek through a worker’s compensation claim since such claims are not premised around negligence.
If you want to claim such benefits and you believe someone else was negligent for your accident, then we can help you with that too. You will need to file a civil personal injury lawsuit in such cases.
However, workers compensation benefits will compensate injured workers for medical expenses and lost wages. In the unfortunate event that the worker dies as a result of the work related accident then it will compensate his or her dependent family members for lost income and financial support the worker would have brought in.
There are different types of workers compensation benefits, namely:
- temporary partial disability benefits
- temporary total disability benefits
- permanent partial disability benefits
- permanent total disability benefits
