Workers’ compensation is a system mandated by law and designed to compensate and provide benefits, such as medical costs and disability pay, to people who suffer injury or disease in the course and scope of employment. Worker’s compensation is a no fault system, meaning the benefits are paid no matter who caused the injury.
Almost every employee and every type of injury is covered by workers’ compensation as long as the employee can show that their employment caused or aggravated the injury in whole or in part. While it seems comprehensive, sometimes employers may be skeptical if the injury was not witnessed or reported quickly, or may downplay the seriousness of your injury. At these times, an attorney can help ensure you get the treatment and compensation to help you heal quickly and completely.
