How long does it take to receive compensation after the injury is reported? (Worker's Comp, Workmens Comp)

Posted by Tony Brock | Dec 17, 2021 | 0 Comments

The amount of time varies with employers and insurers. However, in certain circumstances, a 50 percent penalty may be added for waiting time if payment is not made within 30 days of the notice of injury. This requires a determination that there is no reasonable dispute regarding the employee's claim for benefits. This determination is generally made by a judge of the court after a hearing on the matter. Waiting-time penalties also apply when there is a failure to pay compensation after 30 days from the entry of a final order, award or judgment of the court.
