Workers’ compensation law protects workers who are injured while performing their job-related duties. You may be eligible for workers’ compensation if you’re injured while performing your job’s duties.
As an injured employee, you can recover lost wages, medical fees, disability payments, and costs associated with rehabilitation and retraining.
Keep in mind!
- In most states, such as California, employers must have workers’ compensation insurance.
- Workers’ compensation insurance is “no-fault” insurance. Meaning, benefits are provided to injured employees regardless of who was at fault.
