The Core pillar of injury laws and common questions answered

Overview - Workers Compensation

Worker's compensation is a form of insurance that offers wage renewal and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of their employment. In return for these benefits, the injured worker has to give away their right to sue their employer for negligence in workplace safety. This system is designed to protect employees and employers: it ensures that injured workers receive financial support and coverage for medical treatment without having to prove fault. It also protects employers from potentially costly lawsuits.

Worker's compensation laws vary by country and within countries, such as between states in the United States. Generally, this insurance covers medical care for the injured employee, compensation for a portion of lost wages, rehabilitation costs if the employee needs to learn new skills, and benefits payable to the family in the case of a worker's death on the job. The specifics of what injuries are covered, how impairments are evaluated, and how medical care is delivered can differ significantly.
