Workers’ Comp Insurance May Not Cover All Your Expenses
Working for a living requires a simple arrangement between a worker and an employer. In exchange for an hour’s worth of work, the employer pays the worker a wage. At the end of the week, the hours of work are added up and a paycheck is cut. This arrangement has been around for millennia. Both parties depend on the other to survive, which is why many folks in Arkansas are loyal to one employer for decades, if not their entire careers. Unfortunately, that loyalty doesn’t always go both ways.
One misconception about workers’ compensation claims in Arkansas is that just because your employer has worker’s comp insurance, you’ll be completely covered in the event of a workplace injury. That’s simply not the case. We speak to injured workers all the time who were surprised to discover that their workers’ compensation claim doesn’t come close to covering the true cost of their accident, which is why they turn to us.
