Compensation for Work-Related Injury and Disease

Common work-related injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Back pain
  • Concussion, brain damage, traumatic brain injury
  • Knee injuries including dislocations, ligament and tendon damage
  • Burns, scars
  • Mobility issues and disfigurement
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Internal organ damage and damage to major bodily systems
  • Disease, occupational illness

The question for receiving benefits is not the exact type of injury you have. Rather, it is the connection of the injury to your employment. For work-related injuries, you may receive reasonable medical care that the injury requires and financial benefits.

Types of workers’ compensation benefits in Hawaii

The Hawaii workers’ compensation system is a no-fault system to help injured workers. You do not have to prove that your employer is at fault to receive benefits. All you must show is that your injury is work related.

Benefits you receive may include medical care at no cost to you, partial replacement income and disability benefits. You may receive:

  • Medical care to address your injuries
  • Mileage reimbursement if a doctor deems you unable to use public transportation
  • Temporary total or partial disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Disfigurement compensation
  • Death benefits

Benefits are based on reasonable medical care to treat your injuries, your earnings before your injury, any permanent harm that remains following medical care and your ability to return to work. Qualified dependents may claim death benefits if a work-related injury results in a fatality.

When should I hire a workers’ compensation lawyer?

You should hire a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as you are injured, or as soon as possible in your case. Mistakes in the process or missing deadlines may make it difficult to access your benefits. Having a lawyer ensures you’re taking the right steps to get fair treatment in the workers’ compensation system.

Workers’ compensation and third-party claims

Having the right to benefits under the workers’ compensation system doesn’t necessarily prevent you from bringing a third-party claim. It’s possible that another party was negligent. They may have legal liability under another legal theory.

There are important things to know and do if there is a third-party claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. Our lawyers are knowledgeable in cases that involve both paths to compensation. We can assist you with this type of situation.
