Workers’ compensation is a program that is set up to help employees have access to financial benefits should they become injured or ill due to work related causes.
Any employee injured or ill by occupational exposure should contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
There are many situations in the workplace that can cause an injury or illness.
If there is faulty equipment, if an employee repeatedly is exposed to toxic chemicals, or is under heavy amounts of stress, the company could be held responsible.
Workers’ compensations laws exist to protect employees from these dangerous hazards and serve to ensure that all employees have a safe work environment.
Injured or ill employees have legal right to compensation and that includes keeping their jobs if they desire.
