Workers' CompFoot and ankle injury
Workers’ compensation is a state-mandated and regulated insurance which is designed to provide compensation and cover medical expenses of an employee who was injured on the job. Workers’ comp is organized to benefit the injured worker and set up to pay for medical bills and give monetary awards to offset lost wages. An individual who suffers an injury during employment and was causally related to the nature of the work will be eligible to claim workers’ comp. If you are hurt on the job, your employer is required by law to pay for workers’ comp benefits.
