Important Things to Consider In Workers Comp Law
2
According to the Workers Comp Act, employees who
are injured on the job have a right to
compensation by their employer. The law aims to
safeguard the rights of the injured worker and
provide them benefits. The laws are fairly
complex for the injured employee to handle on
their own and therefore, it is recommended that
they get the help of an injured worker attorney.

Workers who are injured on their jobs are
provided with cash or medical benefits by their
employers, according to the Work Comp Law.
5
Employers are required to pay for the medical
bills of their injured worker as well as weekly
cash benefits, while the employee is not required
to contribute into it at any cost.
6
When a work comp case is filed, no party is
considered to be at fault and the amount that the
worker receives is solely based on the extent on
the treatment of their injury and their weekly
average wage.
7
A worker will lose the case if the injury has
occurred due to their intoxication from alcohol
or drugs.

If the workers injury is such that they can
return to work but cant earn the same wages as
before, they may be subjected to compensation
that will be 2/3 of the difference.
