Workers’ compensation is insurance coverage designed to provide injured workers with the treatment they need after work-related injuries or illnesses. These benefits can cover the costs of medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation expenses. But if you’ve been injured on the job, getting benefits can be difficult. At Robert J. DeBry & Associates, we want to make sure you have the strongest possible claim.

Our Utah workers’ compensation lawyers know the law, and we’ll work hard to get you the maximum benefits you’re owed. Don’t wait to get the help you need; talk to a member of our legal staff today—just dial (801) 699-9999, or complete our free initial consultation form.

Types of Workers’ Compensation Claims

Depending on how your accident happened, there are two types of workers’ compensation claims that can be filed in Utah:

  1. Administrative claim
    If your injuries were caused by the negligence—or carelessness—of your coworkers or your employer, you may have an administrative claim. An administrative claim allows you to collect compensation for medical bills and lost wages. You can often receive benefits for permanent impairments as well.
  2. Third-party claim
    Third-party claims are filed when your on-the-job injuries were caused by someone who is not your coworker or employer. These claims are handled in the civil court system. Third-party claims allow you to collect benefits for the same expenses as an administrative claim—but you also can get compensation for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Future economic loss also can be considered.

Our Salt Lake City workers’ compensation lawyers can help you determine how to get benefits based on the details of your accident.
