Between medical expenses and lost income from missed work, getting hurt on the job can represent a major financial burden.

If your employer has workers’ comp insurance, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical treatment as well as temporary income benefits. Workers’ compensation is “no-fault,” meaning that you do not have to prove that your employer’s actions caused the injury to get compensation. Unfortunately, not all employers carry workers’ compensation insurance and the compensation offered by workers’ comp is often insufficient.
