Workplace injuries include those that require short term recovery as well as more serious injuries causing permanent disability. In any event, you are well within your rights to file a workers' compensation claim. You can seek coverage whether or not your accident was caused by a co-worker, and there is no requirement to prove that negligence was a factor in the accident. According to the Labor Commission of Utah, you can receive compensation for hospital bills, medical bills and prescriptions, wage replacement for time lost from work, permanent partial impairment or total disability
All employers in our state are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. If you have been injured while on the job, do not hesitate to seek full and proper medical attention, and be sure to make notes and keep full records to document the scope of the injury. We will use this information, along with our knowledge of the law, to help you recover the amount you deserve.
