Workers’ Compensation Basics

Workers’ Compensation Basics

Every year, thousands of people are hurt on the job in America. No matter what your career may be, there are always risks and factors that could cause unexpected injuries. Here at Oahu Spine & Rehab we work with your workmen’s compensation claim in order to get you back to good health and back to work as quickly as possible. Many injuries require careful attention and rehabilitation plans. We are happy to offer this to the people of Kailua that have been injured on the job.

According to the Division of Workers’ Compensation, workers’ compensation is defined as when you “get hurt on the job and your employer is required by law to pay for workers’ compensation benefits”. This can be applied to a one time accident caused injury such as falling and hurting your back, or getting into a car accident while making deliveries.

Another case that is considered is if some part of your job has caused an injury over a long period of time. Such as if you had worked in a factory for years and you developed arthritis in your hand due to the job that you do. Both of these cases should be covered by your employer under workers’ compensation laws to receive benefits.
