ID : 21833   
« back to classes page
A workers' compensation case is one of the most common types of lawsuits in the United States. Paralegals are far more likely to be involved with workers' compensation than criminal cases, business disputes, or intellectual property cases. This course will introduce you to workers' compensation law and provide you with a skill set that will help you gain employment in this fast-growing legal field.


Learning Objectives:

  • Trace the history and basic system of workers' compensation.
  • Explore workers' compensation benefits, including temporary and permanent disability.
  • Discover the benefits available under the federal workers' compensation system.
  • Understand the relationship that Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid have with one another and the workers' compensation system.
  • Gain an understanding of the medical system that provides coverage to injured employees and the responsibilities of employers under this system.
  • Study the system of hearings and benefit disputes available to both employees and employers.
  • Establish a solid understanding of the method used to negotiate and enforce awards to employees.
  • Appreciate the different levels involved in appealing a workers' compensation award, both at the appeals board level and all the way through the United States Supreme Court.
