Rhode Island Workers Compensation Attorney
What is Workers Compensation?
Workers Compensation is a type of insurance that provides medical benefits and wage replacement for employees who have been injured on the job. On the job injuries can occur in any profession and workplace. Insurance companies and employers may attempt to avoid responsibility for an employee who was injured on the job. In these situations, a workers compensation attorney is needed to define your rights as an employee and defend your claim in the litigation process. As a result of the injury, the victim will have to deal with the possible loss of income due to the inability to work, the costly medical treatments and overwhelming paperwork for benefits approvals.
Rhode Island Workers Compensation Laws
In the state of Rhode Island, employers are required to report every personal injury incurred by an employee under their authority or employment. The RI workers compensation laws also indicate a specific timeline in which the reports should be submitted. These laws directly affect your workers compensation case and are potentially important factors in the building of your case.
§ 28-32-1 Reports required from employers. – (a) Every employer who is or becomes subject to the provisions of chapters 29 – 38 of this title shall report to the director, in writing or in any other manner specified by the director, every personal injury sustained by an employee arising out of and in the course of his or her employment connected and referable to the employment, if that injury proves fatal or incapacitates the employee from earning full wages for a period of at least three (3) days, or requires medical treatment regardless of the period of incapacity.
