Worker’s Compensation Resources

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that provides employees who have been hurt on the job with compensation medical care. This compensation medical care is in exchange for the employee’s right to sue the employer for negligence. The bargain is the trade-off between the lack of recourse and limited coverage. Although plans are different between each jurisdiction, provisions can be made that allow for compensation that is paid on a weekly basis, for economic loss and for medical expenses.
