Workers compensation offers support and financial assistance to workers who are injured on the job. Dealing with dangerous machinery or toxic chemicals puts workers in certain industries at constant risk. From construction and landscaping to scientific research and engineering, some industries are dangerous regardless of how safe an employee is.
Workers compensation provides for on-the-job injuries when they are caused by simple accidents. Sometimes, however, an employer knowingly puts employees at risk for injury and harm by creating or allowing an unsafe working environment.
