Workers’ compensation laws are in place to ensure that workers who are injured at work receive medical treatment and appropriate monetary compensation for their injuries. Workers’ compensation is designed to bypass the costly process of litigation while providing guaranteed benefits for injured workers. Under workers’ compensation, workers who are injured while at work are eligible to receive clearly defined benefits when injury or disability occurs as a result of a work accident.
Workers’ compensation laws were developed in the United States to protect and assist workers who suffered an injury at work, or as a direct result of their job. The workers’ compensation program may vary from State to State, but follows the same rules everywhere when it comes to liability. No matter who is at fault (the employee or the employer), the program ensures that the injured worker receives medical and financial assistance in the aftermath of an accident at work.
