Workers’ compensation was enacted to provide necessary funds for individuals and their families when a workplace injury caused them to become unable to work, temporarily or permanently. Everyone expects (andshould expect) to remain reasonably safe while carrying out their work duties. However, accidents can and do occur—and the results can be life-altering. Workers’ compensation can help you with everything from medical bills to the cost of living.
Injuries sustained while at work or during the scope of your work are typically covered by workers’ compensation. These can include the following and more:
