Are You Eligible for Workman's Compensation?

Workman's Compensation Benefits in Missouri

If you have been seriously hurt or injured in an accident on the job or have developed a repetitive motion-caused disease such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Cubital Tunnel Syndrome from constant and repetitive work motions involving the arms or wrists, then you could be eligible for workman's compensation benefits. However, it is important to realize that your receiving workers compensation benefits for your work injury caused by an accident or repetitive motion disease is not automatic and in many cases employers and their workman's compensation insurance refuse to pay you the workers compensation benefits to which you should be entitled under the law because the facts are on your side.

Employers will sometimes ignore you if you are hurt on the job or even if they do offer medical treatment, it will be by a company doctor that may find little wrong with you and will often ignore some of your medical problems. These doctors are loyal to the workman's compensation insurance companies that they work for. On the other hand, if you choose your own treating doctors, you could be forced to pay the medical bills yourself. However, if your employer or their workman's comp insurance denies your claim and refuses to select a doctor to treat your work injuries, you could hire a workman's compensation lawyer to file your claim and then fight to force the insurance company to pay for medical treatment the insurance company denied you. This can involve a long fight, but it can be well worth it if you win your case in the end.

In order to ensure that you get the workman's compensation benefits that you deserve, it is important to understand all of your rights and the best way to fight the workman's comp insurance for medical treatment of your on the job injuries your employer or their workman's comp insurance has denied you . Do not let yourself fall victim to your employer or their workman's compensation insurance company's denial of medical treatment and money benefits on your valid claim to be compensated for your work-related injuries.
