Each state has a workers' compensation law that provides for medical care and cash benefits in the event that a worker is injured on the job.
The level of benefits and their duration vary widely from state to state. Within each state some employers will be insured through insurance companies and others will be self-insured.
Workers with serious injuries should be represented by attorneys, who may or may not work on a contingency-fee basis.
