Workers’ compensation claims can be high stakes
Workers generally can’t sue employers for injuries at work. Instead, workers can claim no-fault workers compensation benefits, funded by employers, to compensate them for workplace injuries.
Workers’ compensation insurance provides workers with healthcare benefits, wage-loss benefits, and permanent disability benefits. Many other benefits, such as re-training for jobs and allowances, are available as well.
Workers’ compensation benefits, especially permanent disability benefits, can be significant and even life-changing for workers who are seriously injured.
