When you’re hurt or unwell due to work-related incidents, it can be challenging to take care of yourself and your loved ones. Fortunately, workers’ compensation is available to help. This program provides employees with medical assistance and financial support to cover lost wages when they get injured or fall sick at work.
The good news is that you can apply for workers’ comp if you get hurt or sick while working, regardless of who’s at fault. You don’t have to prove that your employer caused the incident. Even if you were responsible for your injury or illness, you can still apply for compensation.
The purpose of workers’ compensation is to ensure that you receive the necessary care to recover and return to work. It covers medical expenses such as doctor visits, hospital stays, physical therapy, and medication. If you have to take time off work due to your condition, workers’ comp can also provide a portion of your salary during your absence.
If you suspect that you might qualify for workers’ compensation, it’s crucial to inform your employer about your injury or illness as soon as possible. They will provide you with the necessary information to file a claim and obtain the compensation and care you need and deserve.
