Workers’ Compensation At a Glance
Workers' compensation is a system that pays lost-wage benefits and medical care to workers who become disabled because of an injury or illness related to their job.
If an injury or illness is found to be job related, the affected worker may be entitled to medical care for the injury or illness, disability payments for a portion of lost wages, rehabilitation services and, in the event of death, benefits payable to dependent survivors. Injured workers are not required to prove fault on part of their employers, but in return they give up their right to sue in tort. This process eliminates intercompany legal battles and provides immediate benefits for injured workers.
Workers’ compensation carriers and insurance agents provide coverage to millions of businesses every year.
