Workers' Compensation in Alaska
Workers who are injured on the job or develop occupational illnesses don't have to take their employers to court. Instead, your medical expenses and lost wages should be covered through the company's workers' compensation insurance. But if you don't get all of the money you deserve, an Alaska workers' compensation attorney can help you appeal your claim.
Reasons to Hire an Alaska Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Often, the workers' compensation claims process operates smoothly. But in some instances, you may need to hire an Alaska workers' comp attorney.
You'll want to hire a workers' comp lawyer if:
- Your claim has been denied, or you didn't receive the full amount of money you deserve, and you need to have a hearing before the Alaska Workers' Compensation Board
- Your employer didn't have workers' compensation insurance
- You're not covered under your employer's worker's comp insurance
It's important to understand that even though your claim is being processed and resolved outside of the courts, the claims process still requires knowledge and understanding of the Alaska Workers' Compensation Act. If your claim is anything but routine, you're strongly advised to hire experienced Alaska workers' compensation attorneys.
