What Benefits Does Workers' Compensation Provide?
When a worker gets injured on the job, it can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. Workers' compensation provides benefits to employees who have suffered a work-related injury or illness. These benefits may include medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation services. In some cases, workers' compensation may also provide death benefits to the family of an employee who has died due to a work-related injury or illness.
According to the National Safety Council, a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds in the United States. This highlights the importance of workers' compensation benefits for employees and their families. Without these benefits, injured workers may struggle to pay for medical expenses or be unable to support themselves and their families while they recover.

By holding employers responsible for providing a safe work environment and providing benefits to injured workers, it encourages employers to prioritize safety in the workplace.
