Details Matter: Describing Your Workplace Injury
Should you suffer an injury necessitating workers’ compensation benefits, it’s critical that you look closely at the description of your injury written by your employer. The description will be included on your Agreement for Compensation form or Notice of Compensation Payable.
An Unfortunate Reality
It is not uncommon for an employer to misrepresent the severity of their employee’s injury. For example, your boss may describe your injury as a simple strain when, in reality, the injury is far more serious. When analyzing documents pertinent to your workers’ compensation claim, make sure that your employer’s words match your actual injury. Failure to do so can leave you and your family unprotected from future complications arising from your injury.
