Workers’ compensation is a system that provides benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. In Idaho, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to provide coverage for medical expenses, wage replacement, and other related benefits. When an employee is injured on the job, they can file a workers’ compensation claim to seek these benefits.
In Idaho, the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim is one year from the date of the injury or the date when the injury became apparent. It is important to report your injury to your employer and file a claim within this timeframe to preserve your right to seek compensation.
Workers’ compensation benefits in Idaho typically include coverage for medical expenses, temporary total disability benefits (wage loss payments), permanent disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits in cases of fatal workplace injuries. The specific benefits you may be eligible for will depend on the nature and severity of your injury.
