Workers' Compensation is a federal insurance program that takes care of the medical treatment and bills when you are injured or became ill on the job.

When should I make a workers' comp claim?
You may be fortunate and only receive a minor injury that does not require extensive medical treatment, which heals quickly and does not stop you from working, or only has you missing a few days of work. If you sustain a more serious injury or illness, however, you may be facing:
- physical therapy
- temporary or permanent disability
The types of injuries and/or illnesses covered by workers' compensation insurance generally fall into a few categories: isolated accidents; injuries that endure for a long time; illnesses associated with stress on the job; exposure to elements on the job causing disease or sickness; or pre-existing conditions that are exasperated by activities on the job.
