With very few exceptions, all employers in the State of Utah are required to maintain workers compensation insurance for their employees in order to protect employees who receive work related injuries or illnesses. If you are injured at work your employer is usually obligated to provide you workers compensation benefits whether it was your fault you were injured or not. At Smart, Schofield, Shorter & Lunceford, we can guide you on workers comp and whether you qualify.
If you have been injured or become ill as a result of your employment, you may be entitled to benefits. Benefits available include partial wage replacement, medical care, travel expenses you incur as the result of receiving medical treatment, and compensation for partial or permanent disabilities. Additionally, if an injured worker dies, burial and dependent benefits may be available.
If you have been denied coverage for a workplace injury, call us immediately. Certain actions and notices must be filed within certain time frames, so you must act quickly. We are here to help you navigate your claim through the process. All workers compensation cases are taken on a contingency basis only. That means we don’t get paid unless we recover benefits for you.
