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.
Some of the best ways to maximize your benefits are to:
-Inform your employer immediately of any work injuries
-Get medical treatment immediately
-Follow up with you the work comp insurance carrier
-Contact an experienced work injury attorney if you are having difficulties
If you want to ensure you are receiving the proper benefits and want to maximize your recovery, you can contact an experienced Idaho work comp lawyer.
