Advantages of Workers’ Comp
Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim
A serious job-related injury can result in hospitalization, expensive medical treatment, the need for home care and a lengthy recovery period. Many individuals and families are unprepared for the financial drain of severe injuries resulting from an accident. When combined with the physical pain and suffering an injury can cause, the overall impact of a workplace accident on an employee’s life can be devastating.
Federal and state workers’ compensation laws make it possible for employees that are hurt on the job to receive compensation for their injuries. Employers are required to carry workers’ comp insurance and pay any benefits an injured employee is due.
