It is a known fact that many people suffer from workplace injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has regulations in place to protect workers, especially in fields that are consider more dangerous than others, like the construction industry. Even with the safety rules and regulations, accidents happen and workers’ get hurt. Due to this, the workers compensation program was implemented.
When an employee suffers a workplace injury, he or she may qualify for benefits, monetary and medical, from the company. The worker’s compensation program is designed to provide help and aid to the injured employee without proving fault against the company or another worker. The business pays into this program so that in the event of a workplace accident, the benefits to the employee are already paid for. The Department of Labor states that those who are injured at work may be eligible for wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation under workers compensation.
