Workers Compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that ensures that employees who are injured or killed on the job receive compensation. Employees, or their families, can be compensated for personal injury or death by accident while on the job. This includes medical care for the injury or illness, replacement income, costs for retraining, compensation for any permanent injuries, as well as benefits to survivors of workers who are killed on the job. Compensation can usually be received regardless of who is at fault, although there are limits, such as when company rules are broken or it can be proven that alcohol or drugs were involved. Hiring an experienced attorney at Harmon & Felts, P.A., can ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.
