Worker’s Compensation

If you’re injured on the job, you don’t need to worry about how to pay your bills while you recover. Workers’ compensation was designed to get you through this exact situation. Unlike in a personal injury claim, you don’t need to show that your employer did anything wrong. You just need to fill out some paperwork documenting your injury and the fact that it happened on the job.

Unfortunately, while the process sounds simple, things aren’t that easy in practice. Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance paid for by employers, and there is an incentive to deny claims to keep both medical costs and insurance premium costs low. When you file a claim, your employer may deny that the injury happened on the job, dispute the extent of the injuries, or dispute the type of treatment needed.

If your claim is denied, that isn’t the end of the road. First, seek a medical evaluation by your own doctor as soon as possible to document your injuries. Next, begin the process of appealing the denial of the claim. This often starts with an informal verbal or written appeal to your employer or their insurer. If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can have the claim reviewed by the Arkansas Workers’ Compensation Commission, and if you are still not satisfied with the outcome, you have the right to appeal the Commission’s decision in court.
