Workers' compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that pays medical bills and replaces some lost wages for employees who are injured at work or who have work-related diseases, injuries, or illness. Generally, most employers are legally required to carry worker's compensation insurance.
If you have been injured in an on-the-job accident, or if you have become disabled due to an occupational disease caused by your work, you are entitled to these worker's compensation benefits. If your injury was caused by someone not connected with your employer you may have a claim against the "third party."
Workers' Compensation is designed to help employees injured on the job to seek compensation for their losses. It is also meant to protect the families of workers who are killed on the job or die of work-related illnesses. Workers' compensation is a no-fault system, meaning that you may be eligible for benefits regardless of the fault. However, the claims procedure is complex and there are time limits that must be met.
