Getting injured while working is not something that anyone can predict or prepare for well in advance. At most, what employers can do is make sure that the employees are covered by a Workers’ Compensation insurance.
As the name implies, Workers’ Compensation is provided to those employees who get involved in an accident, or get injured, while in the line of work. In some states such as Massachusetts, Workers’ Compensation is a requirement for employers. Now, while this may be so, some employees are not keenly aware of what benefits they could expect under the Workers’ Compensation Program.
