If you’ve been injured on the job or developed a work-related illness, the first step to receiving the benefits you deserve is filing a claim petition. Claim petitions are based on the circumstances of your injury or illness and include:

LOSS OF WAGES PETITION

A request for compensation payments for missed work time or an inability to continue to perform at work due to partial or total disability.

SCAR PETITION

A request for compensation payments for one or more scars to the head, face, or neck.

SPECIFIC LOSS PETITION

A request for compensation payments for loss of a limb or other body part or loss of the use of a body part.

REINSTATEMENT PETITION

If you’re receiving medical benefits but not wage loss benefits, a reinstatement petition is a request to receive wage loss benefits again.

LUMP SUM SETTLEMENT

Instead of providing you with timed workers’s compensation benefits, insurance carriers may offer you a lump sum settlement.
