About the Workers' Comp Process

From slip and fall injuries to toxic materials exposure, you will want to report any on-the-job injury as soon as possible. You must give notice within 30 days of the accident (If it is an occupational disease, you must report it one year from the date that you knew or should have known about your condition). The notice must include the time and place where the accident occurred and the nature of the injury.

If you successfully obtain workers' compensation, it will most likely cover:

  • Medical costs
  • Temporary or permanent disability payments
  • Permanent impairment costs
  • Death benefits to an employee's surviving dependents
  • Lost wages

The waiting period for workers’ compensation benefits is either 32 hours or four days of lost wages. The claimant will need to choose a physician who can confirm the injuries and help file the claim with the workplace. This is especially true if you have suffered repetitive motion injuries or back and neck damage from a desk job.

It will take a medical expert’s help to establish that work is to blame for your injury, and not a preexisting condition. An experienced Billings workers’ comp attorney can help you cover all your legal bases.

Was your workers' comp claim denied?

In the state of Montana, workers' compensation is compulsory. North Dakota mandates that all workplaces carry this no-fault insurance. This means that if you file a legitimate workers' compensation claim, you should collect fair benefits. This is true even if you share some blame for your accident.

If your claim is denied, this also means that you have legal options. If your claim is unnecessarily declined or your employer refuses to provide you with workers' compensation benefits, I am prepared to help. I formerly worked as a defense lawyer, so I can anticipate the other side's strategies. With my experience and legal skills, I know how to effectively challenge the denial in court.
