When it comes to work-related accidents, the consequences affect victims in many ways. From broken bones to brain damage and even death, workers’ comp is a lifeline for many people facing these hardships.

Different ways workers’ compensation helps injured workers

According to the Department of Labor and Industry, workers’ compensation offers a number of benefits that help injured workers and their loved ones. For example, workers’ comp helps those who are having difficulty covering medical costs, such as hospital treatment, surgery, medicine and orthopedic devices. Workers’ comp also offers specific loss awards to those who permanently lose the ability to use their finger, foot, hand, arm, eyes or ears.

Workers’ comp helps with lost wages and offers death benefits

In addition to medical costs, workers’ compensation also helps those who are struggling with lost wages as a result of a work-related injury. Whether someone is unable to work altogether or they are unable to earn the income they had before becoming injured, workers’ comp can help. Moreover, workers’ compensation offers death benefits to surviving dependents, in some instances.

If you are struggling with the consequences of a work-related accident, you should look into workers’ compensation.
