What happens if I’m injured at work but it wasn’t anyone’s fault?

You can still receive workers’ compensation even if no one was at fault for your injury. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. This means that you can file a workers’ compensation action for any injury resulting in disability, even if your injury is purely the result of an innocent accident.

As an example, let’s say that you slipped and fell while working, and were unable to work for two months. You would alert your employer as soon as possible, who would inform their workers’ compensation insurance carrier of your accident. You would then, in an ideal situation, begin to receive compensation from the insurance company while you are out of work. You could then heal and go back to work as soon as you are physically able.

However, we all know that not every case works out for employees. When an insurance company has denied your claim for workers’ compensation benefits, call us to learn about what steps you can take to get the money you deserve.
