What Is Federal Workers’ Comp?
Federal workers’ compensation is outlined in the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA). According to this provision, government employees are covered for medical expenses and lost wages in the event of a work-related injury. Workers across government agencies are eligible for FECA benefits. The team at Aumiller Lomax specializes in helping people from these federal organizations:
Common On-the-Job Injuries
Workplace injuries are more common than many people might think. The National Safety Council estimates that a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds. While it’s easy to think this statistic is limited to employees with a traditionally dangerous job, that isn’t always the case. Workers who spend all day at a desk or computer might develop repetitive stress injuries, and accidents can happen in nearly any setting. Our attorneys serve federal employees who are affected by the following types of injuries:
How You Can Benefit Under the Law
Clients who are eligible for FECA coverage can obtain a variety of benefits depending on their circumstances. Our team will work with you to determine what kinds of benefits you can expect from your claim. In most cases, our clients earn one or both of the following benefits:
- Medical Benefits: Workplace injuries often mean paying hundreds or thousands in medical bills. Fortunately, FECA benefits can help offset the cost of a hospital stay or follow-up care. There is no limit on the amount of money you may receive, if you can show that ongoing treatment is necessary.
- Continuation of Pay: Some FECA beneficiaries are eligible to collect reimbursement for lost wages, or continuation of pay, for the first 45 days after your injury. To obtain this benefit, you’ll need to file within 30 days of the incident on an OWCP approved form. Note that these funds are still subject to standard taxes and payroll deductions.
