Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation is an insurance that employers are required to maintain to protect employees that are injured at work.  Worker's compensation pays for medical care, lost wages and death benefits to workers injured on the job or to their families in the event of a worker's death from an on the job injury.

Worker's compensation laws are administered by the individual States under the guidelines of federal law.  Almost all workers in the United States are covered under workers' compensation insurance.

Workers' compensation insurance was created to help workers and employers deal with injuries on the job.  Prior to workers' comp injured employees in most cases had to sue the employer to attempt to recover medical costs and lost wages.  Even in successful cases, workers seldom recovered their full losses.

Workers' compensation laws moved the compensation of injured workers out of the court room.  The huge costs of litigation were saved by both workers and employers and both gained more peace of mind.  Most States also have a fund to cover workers whose employer failed to maintain the required workers' compensation insurance.  Penalties for such employers are very stiff.

Employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees or job applicants because of a history of filing worker's compensation claims.  Some employers contest most worker's comp claims.  Others use investigators to determine if claims are legitimate.  Workers with serious injuries who have their claim contested should seek legal help to defend their workers' compensation claim.
