Workers Compensation is designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled in a workplace accident are provided with compensation for their injuries whether from a single traumatic event, or from repetitive work over time.

Workers' Compensation Laws require employers to provide medical treatment with no cost to you, payment of benefits if your injury renders you temporarily unable to work, compensation for the physical damage, and possibly compensation for economic wages lost if the injury results in a loss of employment. The law also provides for future medical rights and other future access to the court should your injuries change over time. In the case of work related fatalities, the surviving spouse and dependent children may be eligible to receive benefits.
