Workers' compensation is designed to provide help to employees injured in the course of their employment. Generally, state workers' compensation laws provide benefits to the injured worker regardless of whether the worker or a co-worker was at fault for the injury. However, workers' compensation benefits may be limited if the employer is not found at fault. Many states limit the amount of wage loss benefits by setting a maximum amount of weekly earnings to determine the income benefits. States may also limit the number of weeks that the injured employee may receive income benefits. It is important to understand the different factors of the state law applicable to your situation.
