Fight for what you need to get back to work after an accident

Rhode Island workers understand how difficult it can be to navigate the aftermath of an accident in the workplace. Even a minor incident can result in serious injuries and expensive medical bills. If you were hurt, you may need specific types of support and guidance to eventually return to work.

You have the right to pursue benefits through your employer's workers' compensation insurance. Through a claim, you can secure support that may include coverage of your medical bills, recovery of a portion of your lost wages and even certain types of help you may need after your recovery is complete. Through a workers' compensation claim, you could be entitled to certain types of rehabilitation benefits. 

What are rehabilitation benefits?

Injured workers are entitled to rehabilitation benefits if the extent of their injuries is such that they are unable to return to the same job they had before their accident or do the same tasks. Examples of rehabilitation benefits you may be able to receive through your workers' compensation insurance claim include the following:

  • Training for new employment if you cannot return to the same job you had
  • Help searching for a new job
  • Education necessary for new employment and assistance with tuition
  • Wage assessment and job analysis
  • Help with interviews, resume building and job searching¬†

If your work accident left you with permanent limitations, you could qualify for on-the-job accommodations through the Americans with Disabilities Act. This could allow you to work and continue to earn a living even with certain types of challenges.

The specific benefits to which you are entitled depend on your goals, needs and injuries. Due to the case-by-case nature of workers' compensation claims, it is beneficial to seek an individual evaluation of your case after an accident in order to understand the benefits you may be able to get.

Protecting your interests starts today

If you suffered injuries in a work accident, you would be wise to take immediate action to protect yourself and seek help regarding your workers' compensation claim. Many people find it beneficial to have help and guidance as they pursue the benefits they need to get better and return to work.

You do not have to navigate the workers' compensation claims process on your own. If you have a rightful claim to rehabilitation benefits, you can fight for the full amount you need and deserve.
