Workers compensation is a system of rules designed to protect employees. It is a form of insurance payment that provides wage replacement and medical expenses to employees for any injuries or illness sustained at work.
Workers Compensation laws provide fixed monetary awards and thereby eliminate the need for litigation. It requires no proof of fault or negligence but only requires proof that you were at work when you were injured or that the sickness was caused by work related hazards. Unfortunately, just like regular insurance, there are lawyers and claims adjusters whose job it is to ensure that the company pays as little as possible to claimants.
