When a business has five or more employees, they are required to have a workers’ compensation policy covering their employees in the event of an accident on the job. If a construction company only has one or two employees, they are still required to carry this type of insurance. An injured worker should immediately report an injury to the supervisor and seek medical treatment. Even a small cut should be reported in the event it becomes infect and further treatment is needed. When a worker is unable to return to work, they should be paid for their regularly scheduled days they’re unable to work.
A settlement or payment for a permanent partial disability is available if someone’s unable to return to work. The extent of the disability will determine how much the settlement will be. Doctors or other experts will evaluate the worker and the medical records. The disability ratings from the doctor are critical to a worker’s case. The weekly amount of their salary when they were last employed will also be taken into the calculations. The best way to obtain a fair settlement is to obtain the experience of the Wegmann Law Firm.
