When Could You Re-open A Closed Workers’ Comp Case?
Being injured while on the job can be devastating to both the injured worker and his or her family. In some instances, what originally appeared to be a minor injury may actually prove to be much more serious and life-threatening than the injured worker may have realized. Should that be the case, it may be in the worker’s best interests to have his or her workers’ compensation case re-opened. First and foremost, workers’ compensation benefits will be able to provide an injured worker with the financial means necessary to get all accident-related medical expenses paid.
These types of benefits can also compensate a worker for lost wages caused by time away from work. In cases where an employee’s work-related injuries have resulted in a partial or total permanent disability, that employee may be eligible to receive disability benefits for the duration of his or her life. If you have experienced a new condition, an additional condition or you have been made aware of a previously undiscovered condition, you may be entitled to have your workers’ compensation case reopened.
