Were you injured on the job? Are you unable to work? Are the medical bills piling up? Are you struggling to keep your head above water? A workplace accident can leave you with a severe injury, causing you to miss days, weeks, maybe even months from work.
If you are injured on the job, you need to report your accident immediately and get medical attention
Montana allows you to see the medical practitioner of your choice for your first visit, but beyond that, your employer can choose the doctor in charge of your care.
Your employer cannot use your injury as a justification to fire you or lay you off.
Your employer has six days from the date you notify them of your injury to report it to their workers’ compensation insurer.
You can recover the costs of your medical care, physical therapy, lost wages, and if needed you can seek compensation for short-term or long-term disability.
If your employer denies you benefits or is wrongfully withholding your rightful benefits, you can appeal their decision. USAttorneys recommends you enlist a workers’ compensation lawyer to assist you with an appeal.
All Montana employers with five or more employees must have workers’ compensation insurance in case an employee is injured or killed. Your employer cannot take the premiums for workers’ comp insurance out of your check.
