Employees who get injured on the job are entitled to compensation for their injuries through workers' compensation insurance. An injured employee typically files a claim after suffering a work-related injury, which the insurer investigates before paying out benefits. Just like any other insurance company, the payments are not given out so easily.
Depending on your circumstances, your claim may be blocked by one or more of the following workers' compensation defenses.
Failure to notify your employer about your injury
Statute of Limitations
No Casual Link to Employment
Not attending your doctor appointments
Exaggerating the injury
Willful Negligence or Horseplay
Unable to Determine Cause of Injury
