Workers Compensation

Workers’ Compensation

Workers ‘Compensation is normally considered “no-fault” in nature. An individual with a work-related injury is not required to sue the employer for liability but relies first on the workers’ compensation benefits that are provided by the employer. Each state’s workers compensation system varies but the cost of workers compensation is the responsibility of the employer. Some employers rely on private insurance, some a state workers compensation fund, and some bear full responsibility through self-insured programs.
In any instance, Vocational Rehabilitation plays a major role following a work-related injury. Because the employer will bear full responsibility for medical costs and other expenses related to the injury, including possible indemnity payments, the services offered by Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals are invaluable. Although many insurance companies and states work closely with state vocational rehabilitation programs for retraining and job placement services.
