Understanding Workers’ Compensation
To most, work isn’t just a job, it’s a livelihood. But, if you become injured while working, lost wages and medical bills can turn your world upside down. If you become injured from the regular duties of your job, you don’t have to suffer. Workers’ compensation is your recourse in such situations.
Workers’ compensation, sometimes simply called workers’ comp, is a state-mandated insurance program that provides employees with wage replacement and medical care if they’ve been injured in the course of their job. The federal government runs the workers’ compensation program for employees of the federal government.
The details will vary case by case, but since no party is determined at fault, an employee will typically receive workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault.
With the help of our experienced attorneys, you can heal without worrying about lost wages or medical bills by filing for workers’ compensation. Different states have different laws, which is why it’s important to contact a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney.
