When someone gets hurt at work, they may require medical treatment and time off to heal from their injury. Every state has its own workers’ compensation system to process such claims, set deadlines and determine which employers are required to carry this insurance. Nationwide, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, meaning the injured worker does not have to prove who caused their injury. Rather, they simply have to establish that their injury or illness occurred in the course and scope of their employment. This means that even if you are partially or fully responsible for your work-related injury, you are typically still eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, many workers misunderstand their rights and obligations (or are intentionally misled by employers). Hiring a top-rated workers’ compensation lawyer ensures that your right to recovery is protected.
