Knowing What Workers’ Compensation Will Cover

Queens | NYC | Brooklyn | Bronx Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

When you suffer a serious injury on the job, such as a broken bone, torn ligament or herniated disc, you can be pretty certain that any losses associated with that injury will be covered by a workers’ compensation claim. But what about seemingly minor injuries? What if you crack a tooth in a slip and fall on the job? What if a work-related mishap causes you permanent scarring or disfigurement?

The answer is that workers’ compensation is responsible to pay for all types of losses, provided the loss was sustained in a job-related accident or incident. Here’s the important caveat, though—you must have all necessary medical records and documentation to support your claim:

  • If you broken or cracked a tooth, or have any other dental issues because of a work-related incident, you need to see a dentist who will identify what happened to you, what your diagnosis is and what treatment you’ll need to remedy your problem
  • If you bust your glasses on the job, you’ll need to visit your eye doctor and get verification that you need the glasses to address a specific vision problem

For any type of work-related injury or loss, make certain that you keep all receipts and documentation as to the exact costs incurred.
