Workers’ compensation logistics
While state laws vary, workers’ compensation refers to getting hurt on the job (such as a shoulder or back injury suffered while lifting at work) as well as being exposed to occupational diseases or conditions (an example would be the development of carpal tunnel syndrome, which is caused by work-related repetitive motion activities). Most employers are required by state law to carry workers' compensation insurance to take care of things like medical expenses and lost benefits for their employees’ work-related injuries. The same laws require these employers to pay some benefits quickly and at no cost to the injured employee who has suffered the work-related injury or condition.
Work-related injuries include, but are not limited to, head injuries, back or spinal injuries, brain injuries, shoulder, knee and other joint or skeletal injuries, disease caused by industrial exposure, or illness from toxic substances, loss of limbs, paralysis, and death.
