People often ask our workers’ compensation attorneys if they are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they did not miss work after being injured. Some people think there are minimum amounts of time they have to take off work to prove they were truly injured. The truth is: You do not have to miss any time at work to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
There are many different types of benefits you may be eligible to receive, both monetary and medical, based on your circumstances, even if you did not take any time off work. That is why it is important to have a lawyer on your side who can assess and navigate your specific case.
We hope this helped provide some insight on a common workers’ compensation question. If you have any other questions for our workers’ compensation attorneys or to get a free consultation, call Bentoff & Duber at 216-861-1234 or submit a contact form.
