Workers’ compensation laws exist to protect both workers and their employers from workplace accidents. Employers are required to carry insurance so that when accidents happen—as they always do—workers are able to receive the care they need, and employers don’t have to worry about lawsuits dealing with negligence. With workers’ compensation insurance, both parties are protected so that business can go on, and workers can come back to work as soon as possible.

The details of workers’ compensation laws vary from state to state, but the general rules are that if an employee misses seven days of work due to a work-related injury, he or she is entitled to payment from the workers’ compensation insurance. The seven missed days do not need to be consecutive, meaning seven days straight of missed work. If a worker misses one day, comes back to work for three days, misses another four days, and so on until seven days of missed work, the worker is still eligible for a claim.

If you have been denied a workers’ compensation claim, you may be eligible to receive a cash payment. Complete a free evaluation to see if you pre-qualify for a no-obligation discussion with an attorney or advocate in your area.
