Coeur d’Alene Work Injury – Maximizing Your Benefits

An Idaho work injury often leaves the injured worker with medical bills and missed work. Increased bills and lost wages often cause stress about just paying bills.

Thankfully, Idaho workers’ compensation benefits are usually available after an on-the-job injury. Benefits can include medical benefits, lost wages, permanent disability benefits, and retraining.

With work comp, you don’t have to prove that your employer did something wrong. Instead, you only have to show that the accident happened at work. Even though the Idaho work injury system is supposed to be friendly to injured workers, often the work comp insurance carrier will deny a claim.
