Workers' Compensation in Wisconsin
Wisconsin workers' compensation insurance provides financial assistance to workers who are injured on the job or develop an occupational illness. If your workers' comp claim is denied or you do not receive the full amount to which you think you are entitled, a Wisconsin workers' compensation attorney can help you appeal your denial and obtain the money you deserve.
Wisconsin Workers' Compensation Basics
Most Wisconsin employees—including full- and part-time workers—are covered by workers' comp insurance beginning on their first day of employment.
However, you may not be covered by Wisconsin workers' compensation insurance if you:
- Are a federal government employee
- Work for a railroad or are a maritime employee
- Work as a domestic employee
- Work in some farm positions
How a Wisconsin Workers' Comp Attorney Can Help You
Workers' compensation insurance entitles employees to payments if they are injured or sickened on the job and unable to work. The benefit of insurance is that, in most instances, covered workers do not have to sue their employers for compensation for work-related medical care and lost wages.
If, however, your workers' compensation claim is denied, or you receive insufficient compensation, you will have to file an appeal. Your Wisconsin workers’ comp lawyer can:
- Help you determine if you've received sufficient compensation for your claim
- File a request for a hearing before an administrative law judge
- Gather evidence supporting your claim and represent you at the hearing
