If this happens, your workplace will submit a worker’s compensation claim, and you will receive a case number and case manager. This case number will be used for any correspondence about your case, as well as with doctors or to receive treatment to cover your recovery costs while under claim. It can be a complex process. If you believe you are not fairly receiving workers’ compensation, consulting with a personal injury lawyer can help you learn your rights.
