Understanding workers’ compensation in Montana
The bottom line is you should be able to receive workers’ compensation if you sustained your injury at work in most cases. That’s the law in Montana. It doesn’t matter who was at fault. If you work for a company in Montana, you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits in most cases, regardless of who caused your accident.
The Montana State Fund operates the state’s workers’ compensation insurance program. This program provides wage-loss benefits and medical treatment in the event of a workplace injury. It includes the right to choose your own doctor for your initial treatment (though not necessarily for subsequent treatment). All businesses in Montana are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance. If you get hurt, you should be covered.
