To protect workers from the negative financial and physical effects of an injury at work, most businesses offer workers’ compensation coverage. This is a method of ensuring that every worker has the right to coverage despite who was at fault. This type of coverage will afford you, and possibly your family, the medical benefits you deserve while disallowing you the right to sue your employer.
Despite the beauty of this program that has been put in place by multiple legislative acts, it is important to realize that many initial filings are denied. Most employers will try to persuade workers to file through this system and many times it works out to the detriment of the employee.
