Sometimes at work, we find ourselves in risky situations. Mistakes can happen, and when they do it is always best to stay covered. Worker's compensation
covers all type of injuries or illness from a job. In many cases worker's compensation is a mandatory insurance carried by many businesses. It protects both the individual from losing income from a work-related injury and businesses from lawsuits.
Workers compensation covers many costs from work-related injuries included recovering lost-income as well as paying for medical bills. However, not all injuries can be classified as work related: self-inflicted injuries, injuries due to drug or alcohol consumption, and injuries from natural disasters are normally not considered "work related".
