Can I recover workers’ compensation benefits if I am injured after I am fired but before I leave the work facility?

Yes. Generally, workers’ compensation will cover you until you have left your employer’s premises. The situation is analogous to when you clock out for the day and are injured while you are on your way out of the building.

After you quit your job or are terminated, you remain covered by workers’ compensation for a reasonable time while you pack your belongings or clean out your office. Therefore, you would be covered if you fell as you were walking toward the exit of the building.

I have dealt with other law firms, and there is no comparison. It is an honor to know you and I must say, that I have the highest regard for your integrity.
