What Rights Do You Have When You Get Injured on the Job?

  • If you get hurt on the job, your employer’s insurance company has to provide you medical care at no cost but they get to choose the doctors you go to.
  • If you are out of work for more than five days, you get temporary disability where you will receive about 70% of your average salary.
  • Your case moves into court after your treatment is over to award you for the value of your injuries.
