Hawaii Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Receiving Benefits after Injury in the Workplace

All employers in Hawaii, with a few exceptions, that have one or more employees are required by state law to provide workers' compensation benefits in the event of workplace injuries. They have the choice of purchasing insurance from an authorized carrier or paying benefits directly to their employees. If you have sustained an injury or illness which was caused in some way by the actions involved in the performance of your job, or by the environmental conditions of your workplace, you are entitled to benefits. It is important to take every action possible to ensure that you receive full benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages.

Submitting a claim can be a confusing and complicated experience, involving extensive documentation and paperwork to prove that you qualify for the payment of benefits. If you attempt to file the claim on your own, you run the risk of having your claim denied, delayed or of being approved for less than you need, based on incomplete evidence or mistakes you could make through inexperience. A seasoned Hawaii personal injury lawyer can assist you through the entire process, from making proper notification to your employer , obtaining the necessary documentation from your doctor , to negotiating with the insurance company to make sure you receive your benefits when you need them.
