Types of Workers’ Compensation Claims

You take precautions to stay safe at work, but accidents sometimes happen. And when you suffer a workplace accident that causes a temporary or permanent disability, you may be out of work for a long period of time, and you may lose the paycheck that you depend on. Workers’ compensation can provide benefits to compensate you for lost wages, but it can be difficult to get your claim approved.
