What Is Workers' Compensation?

Have you been hurt on-the-job? We know how frustrating this can be. Fortunately, workers’ compensation is available to protect your rights and ensure the compensation that you need to recover from your injuries.

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation (also known as workers’ comp) is designed to protect your rights at work. Under workers’ compensation, you are entitled to benefits and medical care — paid by your employer’s insurance carrier. This is a state-mandated insurance program that protects workers who suffer from job-related injuries or illnesses.

Workers’ compensation usually covers medical care from the injury or illness, replacement income, costs for retraining, compensation for any permanent injuries, and benefits to survivors of workers who are killed on the job.

If your employer denies your claim or you fail to receive the benefits that you are entitled to, your settlement does not cover all of your lost wages, or your medical injuries prevent you from returning to work, it is important that you contact an attorney. An attorney will be able to help you receive the benefits that you and your family need.
