An injury on the job can have devastating impact on all aspects of a person’s life. Workers’ compensation laws are designed to provide medical care for the injury, and to provide some financial compensation to offset loss of earnings and resulting disability, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Employers and insurance companies do not always provide the benefits they are supposed to provide, however, and getting good legal advice is essential. Each state has its own workers’ compensation laws, and benefits are different in each state.
