If you have been injured on the job, you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits to help pay for your injuries. Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to workers who are injured. Compensation can cover lost wages, past and future economic loss, payment of medical expenses, and benefits payable to dependents of workers killed while on the job.
