Formerly referred to as workmans comp, workers' compensation laws arose from the need to protect both workers and employers. Unlike other types of personal injury, workers' compensation is no fault. If you are hurt at work, unless other factors intervene, you will get compensated. This includes medical bills, a part of your lost wages, and compensation for future permanent injuries.
Most employers pay workers compensation insurance premiums to an insurance company such as IWIF. When you file a workers' compensation claim, the process is similar to a claim for an auto accident or homeowners claim. You are requesting the insurance company, representing the employer, pay for your injuries. This includes medical bills, a portion of lost wages, and compensation for permanent injuries.
