Federal and state workers' compensation (sometimes called workers comp, workman's comp or workmen's compensation) laws were created to ensure that employees who are injured on the job are provided with fixed monetary awards.
Workers' compensation is insurance that the employer is required by law to carry in case an employee is injured on-the-job, becomes ill due to circumstances surrounding their job, becomes temporarily or permanently disabled, or even if death results from their job. All employers who have 4 or more part-time or full-time employees must provide workers' compensation insurance. It is the law in all 50 states.
Never assume that an employer or their insurance company cares about your injury or if you receive fair compensation for it. The playing field is NOT level.
