Who Is Eligible To Receive Workers’ Compensation?
The workers’ compensation system is designed to remove fault from the equation when it comes to workplace accidents. If a worker was responsible for the accident that led to an injury, he or she is still eligible to receive workers’ comp. The other side of the coin is that if an employer was at fault for the accident, workers’ compensation is the only avenue of recovery for the injured worker. You may not sue your employer for any additional damages.
