What is workers’ compensation insurance?
Workers’ compensation is an often mandatory insurance plan for employers that will cover your expenses if you experience a work-related injury, regardless of fault. In exchange, you give up your right to sue your employer.
If you’re hurt on the job, workers’ compensation generally covers four kinds of expenses:
- Medical bills
- Wages missed while injured
- Permanent impairment benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation training (if your injury renders you unable to continue in your job)
Workers’ compensation operates on a state-by-state basis, and specific laws vary by jurisdiction. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will help you determine your rightful benefits. Contact us for free today.
