When people are injured on the job, they may be eligible to collect workers' compensation. Unfortunately, many people do not understand this because they may misinterpret their rights as workers or they do not know how workers' compensation works.
Generally speaking, workers' compensation is a program that requires employers to pay for this insurance for employees. In exchange, they can be protected from lawsuits filed by injured workers. This means that it is not necessary to prove negligence to collect this type of compensation.
