Silicosis due to working conditions

Workplace injuries can be a hassle for employers because employees might need time off work. If the injury was caused due to the employer's negligence, they might have to pay for treatment of the injured employee. Injuries are easy to deal with because employees might be able to return to their previous position. However, occupational diseases are an effect of adverse working conditions, but the results are far worse than injuries. Occupational diseases have a long-term effect and might cause severe issues for the employer.

What is covered under workers' compensation?

When employees get injured while working, they may be entitled to workers' compensation. They are entitled to this compensation for the duration of their recovery. Essentially workers' compensation is the protection of the employee from lost wages and medical expenses that would have been caused due to injury. The process of filing for compensation is designed to be simple, but there are frameworks and benchmarks set to decide whether the worker is entitled to workers' compensation or not. Workers' compensation is fundamentally different from a lawsuit and is intended as a form of protection for the employee as well as a form of reward. The process of filing for said compensation is akin to making a request contrasting with the aggressive style of demanding used by lawsuits.
