If you have been injured at work, depending on the circumstances and details of the injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Workers compensation was developed to assist those that have been injured while at work. In order to qualify you had to be employed at the time of the injury. Your injury or illness needs to directly affect the tasks you are required to perform while at work. For example, if your job requires handling hazardous materials or chemicals, and as a result you become ill, you are entitled to compensation.
Workers compensation can also compensate you for all past, present and future medical bills. However, if this happens you may not be entitled to full reimbursement for other damages such as pain and suffering or mental anguish.
