Workers’ compensation is a type of “no-fault” insurance. This means that, under nearly all circumstances, you are entitled to compensation when you are injured on the job. Entitled to compensation is not the same as receiving it, however. A Surprising number of workers’ comp claims are denied every year.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance program designed to provide workers who have been injured or become ill on the job with the financial support necessary to recover. As no-fault insurance, who causes an accident is immaterial so long as intentional negligence was not at play. With workers’ compensation, if an injury occurs at work, it can most likely be covered.
