Workers’ Compensation was instituted to help a person who has been injured on the job. The employer is liable by law to carry Workers’ Compensation for just that purpose. You may receive benefits for medical expenses, lost work hours and wages, and if you require any type of rehabilitation, that is also covered. Most workers that have been injured will qualify for benefits. However, there are exceptions where a person may be denied. If this is the case, most of these workers will contact a personal injury attorney to help with his or her case.
