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.
