Following a work-related injury, employees may file for workers’ compensation, which serves as a replacement for wages and additional payment for medical costs incurred. In exchange for workers’ compensation, employees agree to not take legal action against their employers in the form of a personal injury lawsuit.
In order to file for workers’ compensation, the employer must carry insurance and the injury must take place during the scope of employment. To determine the amount of workers’ compensation received, several factors are considered, including the type of work performed by the employee and the employee’s wages.
