Why do I need an attorney?

There are some key points to understand about workers’ compensation in the airline industry. First, workers’ compensation laws and regulations vary by jurisdiction, and this includes the specific rules applicable to the airline industry given the nature of the job. It’s important to be aware of and comply with the regulations in the specific location where the airline operates. The most important thing regarding your work injury is prompt reporting. Let a supervisor, or anyone above you, know of your injury as soon as possible.

If you receive medical treatment for your injury, you are entitled to coverage of that treatment. This includes, but is not limited to doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, prescription medications, and rehabilitative services. Employers or insurance carriers may request independent medical examinations (IME) to evaluate the extent of injuries and determine ongoing benefit needs.

Workers’ compensation typically includes compensation for lost wages during the period of recovery. The amount and duration of wage replacement can vary based on factors such as the severity of the injury and local regulations. In the case of temporary or permanent disability from your work injury, workers may be entitled to disability benefits. The level of benefits often depends on the severity and duration of the disability.

In many cases, employees may need legal assistance to navigate the workers’ compensation process, especially if there are disputes or denials.
