Worker’s Compensation Explained
Workers’ Compensation is a form or insurance that is required from employers to provide direct financial compensation to workers who are injured or contract an occupational disease as a result of their employment.
If you are hurt at work, your employer is going to require evidence of the injury, witness reports, written statements of the account, medical evaluations, and in some cases, immediate drug testing.
The goal of the employer is to minimize their responsibility in the matter and avoid admitting fault, which could further implicate them in the Workers’ Compensation claim.
