We work hard for you
Depending on the nature of your work-related injury or illness, you could be out of work for several weeks or even months. During this time, you could be eligible to receive total disability or partial disability benefits.
Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier will likely decide whether or not you receive such benefits., but the clock is ticking as soon as you get hurt or sick at work. In most cases, you only have 20 calendar days from the date of your accident or injury to notify your employer. Otherwise, you might not get the workers' compensation benefits you deserve.
