What To Do When Your Employer Doesn’t Carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance

If you have been involved in an injury at work, you are probably dealing with a lot of different issues. Along with dealing with the pain of your injury, you might also be itching to get back to the things that you are used to doing, such as going to work or participating in physical activity.

All of these things can be hard enough on their own, even with your employer paying for everything through its workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation coverage is supposed to help cover things like doctor’s bills and other medical expenses, and it’s supposed to help you cover your bills until you’re able to get back to work. This can help make the healing process a little bit easier, since you don’t have to worry about the stresses that go along with financial issues.

If your employer does not have workers’ compensation coverage, however, it can make things that much harder on you. Now, along with dealing with the pain and trauma of your accident, you also have to worry about money. Medical bills can add up fast, and being unable to work can really have an impact on your finances.

You might not think that there is much that you can do in this situation, but a work accident attorney can help you. For example, you may be able to file a lawsuit against your employer for the compensation that you are owed.

You shouldn’t have to deal with a work injury by yourself, particularly without the help of workers’ compensation insurance. If you need help in filing a lawsuit against your employer and otherwise handling your situation, contact us at Lewis & Keller, formerly Mike Lewis Attorneys today.
