What is Workers’ Compensation?

Although it is a very common case, many people do not understand what worker’s compensation claims entail.

Q: What is worker’s compensation?

A: Workers’ compensation is meant to cover an injured employee’s lost wages as well as the costs associated with medical care and rehabilitation. In Ohio, workers are covered by workers’ compensation. Sometimes that’s through the state’s workers’ compensation fund and some employers are self-insured.

When you have been hurt at work, workers’ compensation can cover you for your medical bills, for the time that you have missed from work, and sometimes you can make a recovery based on the permanency of your injury.
