Q: What is covered by workers’ compensation?
A: Workers’ compensation is not designed to be a get-rich-quick scheme, and the benefits that it provides are clearly established by law. The chief elements of workers’ compensation benefits are the payment of medical bills associated with a workplace injury or illness and the replacement of wages lost due to missed work time or reduced work capacity. The specifics may vary in terms of the proportion of wages to be covered, but this is the overall intention.
