Workers Compensation

Workers' compensation is insurance that an employer must carry and is required by law of all employers who have 4 or more part-time or full-time. It is effective to the employee upon an injury, temporary or permanent disability, or death resulting from their job or due to an illness that is related to their job.

Worker Compensation laws were created to ensure that employees who are injured on the job are provided with monetary awards without a protracted legal action or any litigation process. The intent is to control the financial risks for employers and to ease the path to reasonable and earned support for the employee in his time of need. Medical care generally included under Worker Compensation is medical, surgical and hospital services, dental services, crutches, hearing aids, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, nursing care, and prescribed medications. Additional compensation is available for the employee if you are unable to work for more than the state law minimum(s), if you are hospitalized as an in-patient, or become permanently disabled due to a job-related injury or illness.

Under Workers Compensation law any Medical treatment at the employer's expense or Insurance is intended to continue as long as it is reasonable and necessary to care for the injury.
