When a worker is injured on the job, it is considered a workplace accident. If the injured workers’ employer has purchased workers’ compensation insurance, the injured worker is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits allow the worker to collect income while they recover for their injuries and are payable by the worker’s employer. However, there are times when the employer may deny the worker these benefits, leaving the worker without any source of income. This can be extremely hard for injured workers as they are trying to recover from being injured and may not be able to work. In these instances, workers may be allowed to seek legal action against their employers.
