More Information About Workers’ Compensation:Workers Compensation Lawyers

Workers’ Compensation laws were developed to protect workers that are injured on the job and to provide monetary compensation for injuries and loss of wages. Workers’ compensation is often referred to as workmens’ compensation, workers’ comp or workmans’ comp. Employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case an employee is injured on the job, becomes ill due to work conditions, becomes temporarily or permanently disabled or dies.

All fifty states require employers to carry this type of insurance if they employ more than 4 full-time or part-time employees. Workers’ compensation laws vary state-by-state but typically cover items such as medical, hospital and surgical expenses, dental services, crutches, hearing aids, nursing care and prescribed medications among others. Additional compensation can be awarded if the injured is temporarily or permanently disabled or if you require in-patient hospitalization. The employer is typically required to continue covering medical expenses as long as medical treatment is deemed necessary and reasonable.
