What is Workers’ Compensation

Have you gotten hurt at work? Maybe it was an isolated incident, you fell and hurt your back or were in a car accident on a work-related trip. Perhaps it was an incident of repeat exposure, maybe you began losing your hearing because of constant loud noise, or experiencing wrist pain due to excessive keyboarding. 

If something like this has happened to you, it’s possible you’ll be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.  Workers’ comp insurance provides five basic benefits:  

  1. Medical Care 
  1. Temporary disability benefits 
  1. Permanent Disability benefits 
  1. Supplemental job displacement benefits  
  1. Death Benefits
