According to the RI Department of Labor and Training, Workers Compensation is insurance that provides lost wages and medical payments to employees who are injured on the job. Employers in Rhode Island with only one or more employees are required to have Workers Compensation insurance. If you have been injured on the job, you may be eligible for Workers Compensation benefits.

In particular, if your injury was caused by the negligence or carelessness of your employer, you have a right to damages under the Workers Compensation regulations.

Workplace accidents are not uncommon. Over 4.1 million people a year in the United States alone are injured in workplace accidents, with over 2 million of those people sustaining injuries that are serious enough to cause loss of income, or employment, and nearly 1,000 deaths per year as well.

Typical high risk jobs for workplace injuries include:

  • Healthcare workers account for 6.5% of the injuries per year
  • Car crashes cause approximately 1,300 deaths per year
  • Construction workers account for the largest group with 15.2 deaths per 100,000 workers
  • And certain states are at higher risk as well, with Rhode Island’s rate increasing by 20% thus far

If you are injured in a workplace accident, after seeking medical attention immediately, you need to speak to an experienced Workers Compensation attorney who will explain your rights, and the kind of compensation you are entitled to claim.

Filing a claim for Workers Compensation is an involved process, requiring the assistance of someone who is familiar with the Workers Compensation laws, and who will be able to obtain the maximum amount of monetary compensation that you are entitled to claim. A professional Workers’ Compensation lawyer will be able to pursue your claim through a trial if necessary to ensure that all of your damages are recovered.
