Workers’ compensation laws date back to 2050 B.C., when ancient Sumerian law outlined compensation for injury to a worker’s specific body parts.

With the rise of the Industrial Revolution, statewide laws were passed beginning in 1911 to protect injured workers and allow employers to quantify, control and predict their operating costs. As the workplace has continued to evolve, so too have the laws.

When handling cases related to personal injury, employment law, health care, or numerous other areas, you need to have a basic understanding of workers’ compensation claims to effectively represent your clients.

Learn the fundamental steps of a typical workers’ compensation claim as experts guide you through the process and discuss how a claim typically arises, what occurs as the claim plays out and how a claim is ultimately resolved.
