Workers' Compensation is designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled in a workplace accident while on the job are provided with compensation for their injuries. Frequently, the amount of work comp initially provided by an insurance company may not adequately address the long-term impact of the injuries, nor provide the amount of money needed to maintain an established lifestyle.
Workers compensation laws establish a comprehensive framework that most employers follow to provide relief to victims of on the job accidents, illness, or death. Federal statutes outline the specific details of benefits for federal employees and workers that are employed within a governmental organization.
