When dealing with an injury that occurs in the workplace, you may be facing significant financial stress and strain in addition to the health issues surrounding the injury. This is because your injury may prevent you from working in the same capacity as you did prior to your injury. You may see a significant reduction in your income as a result. Fortunately, workers’ compensation benefits can provide some measure of financial relief while you focus on restoring your health.
Important Information About a Workers’ Compensation Claim and Insurer Contact Information

- The address of the insurance company or claims administrator.
