Workers can experience a wide range of on-the-job injuries, including:
Workers' Compensation Benefits Can Help
Work injuries can require extensive medical treatment. This can include hospitalization, surgery, multiple doctor appointments, medication, therapy and apparatus such as crutches or wheelchairs. The expenses can add up quickly, at a time when the injured worker is unable to do the job, resulting in lost income.
Under the state's workers' compensation system, the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for on-the-job injuries is covered. In addition, while unable to return to work, the injured worker can collect partial wages. This system is designed to help the worker remain financially stable after a serious work injury.
But employers and their insurance companies may challenge your claim for benefits. Their interest is in paying you as little as they possibly can. So they may suggest that your injury was pre-existing. Or that a certain medical treatment is not necessary. Some employers pressure injured workers to return to the job, even though they are still recovering from their injuries.
