Every day, people are injured on the job, and when that happens, the employee can seek compensation through workers’ compensation insurance. This is a type of no-fault insurance that enables an employee to be compensated even if they are partially responsible for their injuries. In exchange for compensation, the worker gives up the right to file a civil lawsuit against their employer.
You may qualify for workers’ compensation if you suffer from work-related injuries or illnesses such as:
There are a number of situations that can lead to these types of injuries in the workplace including slip and fall accidents, repetitive stress or overuse injuries, being struck by or colliding with an object, accidents involving tools and other machinery, etc.
