Montana workers’ compensation laws entitle employees to certain benefits when an injury is suffered in an accident arising out of your job and while you were performing the duties involved in your employment. Most Montana employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance and so, for all practical purposes, all workers are covered.
In the aftermath of an on-the-job accident, even the hardest working Montanan may find it impossible to get up and go back to work on his or her own strength. That’s why our state makes sure that employers are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, which provides money and benefits to injured employees. These benefits replace the income that is lost when you are unable to work and help you heal as completely and as quickly as possible. Benefits may include temporary total disability benefits while you can’t work, payment of your medical bills, permanent partial disability benefits, or total disability benefits.
Unfortunately, many workers will encounter obstacles in their search for compensation, even when their injuries obviously qualify for benefits.
