Workers' compensation is a medical insurance plan that was established by the state which requires employers to pay for any medical bills and other costs which may result from a worker getting injured. An employee cannot sue his employer under this plan which provides a benefit to the employer as it protects him from lawsuits.  The employee benefits as he can receive immediate coverage for injuries or disability.

It does not matter what type of injuries you have received; if you were injured at your workplace, it will be covered. Even if you were injured outside the workplace, if those injuries were sustained while performing work duties, you will also be entitled to compensation. From back sprains to broken bones to carpal tunnel syndrome, you should not have to pay one cent of your medicals costs.
