Often times, personal injuries are severe enough to prevent an individual from returning to work immediately after they have been sustained. If you work in the United States and have been injured on the job, you may be qualified to receive workers compensation. Depending on the jurisdiction, injured workers are eligible to receive monetary compensation for wages lost while the worker is unable to perform his or her employment duties, for past and future money loss, and reimbursement for medical expenses. You also cannot be fired while you are away from work due to this type of injury.
