Workers’ compensation is a system that requires an employer, or their insurance company, to pay lost wages and medical expenses for an employee who is injured on the job.
Workers’ comp law is different according to each state, and some specific laws even vary by jurisdiction. However, the concept and its key features are the same. An employee is automatically entitled to receive certain benefits if they suffer from an occupational disease or experience an accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.
Legitimate workers’ comp claims are denied outright each day. Many companies do so with the hope that an employee will not appeal their case or will not know they have the right to do so.
