Answering Your Workers’ Compensation Questions
Our workers’ compensation lawyers are here to answer your questions about getting your benefits. Some of the questions we’re often asked include:
- Can I sue my employer if my injury was their fault?
No. Employees can’t sue their employers in most cases, even if their accidents were due to their employers’ negligence or a coworker’s negligence.
- If my case settles, how long will it take for me to get my workers’ compensation benefits?
Generally, it takes four to six weeks. However, your employer or their insurance company could appeal the workers’ compensation judge’s decision. In fact, both sides can appeal a decision up to four times.
