The ExpertRating Online Law Course (Workers Compensation)
(leading to ExpertRating Law Certification-Workers' Compensation).

Anyone considering a career as a paralegal should have a firm understanding of workers' compensation law. The reason is simple: You're far more likely to be involved in workers' compensation cases than criminal law cases, intellectual property cases, or even business disputes. The only types of cases that are more common are personal injury or medical malpractice, both of which have very strong ties to workers' compensation law.

Knowing the ins and outs of workers' compensation is an absolutely essential skill for any paralegal. Having a solid foundation in this field of law is also a great way to land a job with a private law firm or local, state, or federal governments.
 

This course presents workers' compensation in a straightforward and enjoyable manner. It follows up on other courses taught by a popular legal instructor who has created criminal law and legal nurse consulting courses that have earned strong praise from students.

"Again, another great course by a great instructor."

"Even though aspects of the topics had to be general since students were in different states, the assignments required us to utilize the resources pertaining to our state. That was an excellent approach, since as employees or employers we will be dealing with our state's statutes. Excellent presentation of the material, and constructive feedback that usually inspired me to further research and knowledge! I learned a great deal even though I've worked in medicine for 10 years."

The laws made for Worker's Compensation also provide benefits for the family members of the deceased workers who were killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.

 


Worker's Compensation or Work Comp includes the medical costs incurred and the wages lost if employees are hurt while on duty. Employers in all the states of the U.S.A. (except Texas) require Worker's Compensation insurance. The largest state fund is California's State Compensation Insurance Fund. Worker's Compensation laws are made to make sure that the employees who are injured or immobilized while on duty receive fixed financial assistance.

 

The Claim Number allocated by the insurance carrier is needed to file a claim for the worker's compensation insurance. In rare cases, a company or employer will manage and reimburse the medical costs themselves. The ExpertRating Workerís Compensation Certification course will give you a comprehensive understanding of this insurance coverage method.


ExpertRating Online Law Course (Workers Compensation) Coverage (6 weeks program)
 

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Lesson 1 will go over the basic concepts in workers' compensation. You'll learn how your chances of being involved in a workers' compensation caseóeither as employee, employer, paralegal, or human resource coordinatoróare much higher than you might expect. Every year, hundreds of thousands of claims are filed. This lesson will review how the system works, how claims are filed, and why it's so vital for you to know and understand the basic workers' compensation system.

Friday - Lesson 02

Would you like to know exactly what benefits an injured worker is entitled to receive? Not sure what terms like temporary total disability, permanent total disability, temporary partial, and many of the other terms used to describe workers' compensation benefits really mean? This lesson will take the mystery out of them all. This lesson will go through each type of benefit, avoiding the legal jargon to provide a down-to-earth explanation of the benefit system in the workers' compensation system.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

This lesson will examine the workers' compensation system that covers all federal employees. This is a huge and multilayered bureaucracy, but lesson 3 will go through it step by step to show you how the federal system, which covers hundreds of thousands of federal workers, is both similar to and different from the state systems. This lesson will also examine some of the new initiatives created to track workers' compensation fraud and to prevent government agencies from making double or triple payments for the same injuries.

Friday - Lesson 04

How do Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid interact with workers' compensation benefits? This lesson will answer that question. It will begin with an overview of these three systems. Then this lesson will proceed to a discussion about how these agencies work with state and federal workers' compensation agencies to provide different levels of payments and benefits. If you've ever been injured on the job, are close to retirement, are pregnant, or are in any way disabled, then you need to know how all of these systems work together, as well as what types of benefits you can receive from each.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

So far, the lessons focused on the workers' compensation system, from benefits to the relationships between other government agencies. This lesson will get specific about who is covered under workers' compensation statutes. What, for instance, qualifies a person as an "employee?" Are business owners covered by workers' compensation? How many employees must you have before you're legally obligated to make payments to the state workers' compensation fund? This lesson will answer these and many other questions.

Friday - Lesson 06

What types of injuries are covered under workers' compensation? Generally it is assumed by everyone that if you slip and hurt yourself on the job, your injury will be covered. But is it? What about other types of injuries, such as repetitive stress injuries or psychological trauma? Are they covered as well? In this lesson, you'll learn how injuries are classified under workers' compensation systems and the rules that employees must follow in determining which injuries are covered and which are not.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

It's time to get specific about medical benefits provided under workers' compensation. How much is the injured employee obligated to pay out of pocket? How many treatments may the employee receive? What about physical therapy or chiropractic care? This lesson will address these questions, and will also take a look at some less traditional remedies. Just what types of treatment will the workers' compensation system pay for and what types will they force the employee to pay for?

Friday - Lesson 08

This lesson will talk about the amount of money an injured employee will receive for different types of injuries. You'll learn the precise details about the dollar amounts an injured employee can expect to receive, and this lesson will break this down by the classification of benefits as temporary or total temporary disability. This lesson will also go over how injuries are reclassified as permanent and what that means for the benefits paid out. Finally, this lesson will explore how benefits are actually paid and the possibilities of lump-sum payments.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

This lesson will focus on what happens when an injured employee comes into conflict with his or her employer about benefits. Suppose that the employer wants to terminate benefits? What recourse does the employee have? The employee can request a hearing for a judicial decision about benefits. So this lesson will examine how these hearings are scheduled, what evidence can be brought up at a hearing, the function of administrative law judges, and how attorneys get paid to represent people at workers' compensation hearings.

Friday - Lesson 10

How are workers' compensation awards paid out? Can an injured employee opt for a lump sum instead of a regular monthly payment? How do workers' compensation boards enforce their judgments against employers and insurance companies? These are just a few of the questions this lesson will answer as it examines the issues surrounding obtaining an award. Finally, this lesson will also explore the power that workers' compensation boards have to enforce their regulations, not only against employers, employees and insurance companies, but also against doctors and other medical professionals.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Most employers don't pay workers' compensation benefits from their own budgets. Instead, they obtain workers' compensation insurance. This lesson will examine all of the issues surrounding how workers' compensation insurance works, from issuing the policy to paying out claims. Along the way, you'll learn how insurance companies make money from issuing policies and specify certain types of injuries that justify the insurance company from refusing to pay a claim. This lesson will also examine the role of the insurance defense attorney, who is hired by the insurance company to represent companies in workers' compensation hearings.

Friday - Lesson 12

The final lesson will follow a workers' compensation case through the appellate process. What powers do appellate courts have in workers' compensation cases? Can they modify the award of benefits or completely terminate them? What is the procedure that an employee must follow to bring an appeal when his or her benefits have been terminated? This lesson will answer these questions and explore the role of higher courts in workers' compensation cases.
