Get Financial Compensation After A Worksite Accident
Employers are legally obligated to provide safe work environments for their employees. When a worksite accident occurs, and workers are injured on the job, they can file claims against their employers’ workers’ compensation policies.
In Montana, employers are exempt from personal injury lawsuits when and if they have a workers’ compensation policy in place. However, this isn’t an excuse for an employer to refuse to file a workers’ compensation claim for an injured employee. There are other reasons not to let your employer discourage you from filing a workers’ compensation claim:
- If your employer has a policy, then this is exactly what that policy is for: an injured worker.
- If your employer does not have a workers’ compensation policy the Uninsured Employers Fund may provide benefits to you.
If your injuries were caused by negligent third parties, you may also file personal injury lawsuits against those parties — for example, the manufacturer of a conveyor belt that malfunctioned and caused the worksite accident resulting in injury.
