In ideal circumstances, a workers’ compensation claim will go smoothly, allowing you to receive compensation for injuries sustained in a work-related accident. However, circumstances are rarely ideal, and in many cases the workers’ compensation process becomes complex and even adversarial.
The first step in a workers’ compensation claim is usually proving that your accident and injuries are eligible for coverage by workers’ comp. Simply suffering an injury while at your workplace or while performing job-related duties will not always make your claim an eligible workers’ comp claim. For example, if an employee is injured on the job, but the injury is due to his not following rules or behaving recklessly, he will not be eligible for workers’ comp. The injury also must have occurred during the course of your job, and, in most cases, be related to a specific work condition.
