What is a workers’ compensation claim?
When an employee is injured while working for the employer, the injured worker has a workers’ compensation claim. Of course there are many dynamics surrounding this issue. Sometimes an individual is called an independent contractor but legally he/she will be declared an employee. Sometimes the injury occurs just before or just after clocking out. Sometimes the injury occurs while the employee is on a break. Some individuals don’t have an accident but suffer injuries from doing the same thing over and over again. In all of these scenarios, the injured person is oftentimes entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Nicole Hessen, P.A., are experienced to address all of these issues.
