What Are Your Rights As A Worker?
The complexity of the law rightly leads to many questions about the rights that workers receiving or applying for workers' compensation benefits have. Some of the common rights that you should be aware of are:
You are entitled to get benefits if a doctor declares you are unable to work.
You are entitled to any medical treatment that your doctor orders.
You are entitled to receive reimbursement for any travel expenses that your treatment requires.
You may be able to receive additional compensation after you have completed your treatment. It is dependent on the doctor's medical opinion.
You may be entitled to additional benefits if your doctor declares that you have a permanent disability. This could make you eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance.
