After you are injured on the job and begin receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you rely on those benefits to cover your injury-related expenses and provide a source of income when you are not able to work. If you receive a payment and it is not the correct amount, or do not get a payment when you should, it can understandably make you very worried. It is important to remain calm and follow the proper procedures to ensure you get the benefits you deserve.

Get in Touch with the Responsible Parties
Once we are able to determine how a mistake was made, we can work to fix it. Depending on the reason why your benefits were incorrect or late, we will contact your employer’s insurance provider, the state workers’ compensation bureau if necessary, and any other parties that mat be responsible for the error.
