Workers’ Compensation is insurance that businesses must carry if they have employees. Your claim will be placed in front of the Workers’ Compensation Board and determined if you have any such benefits that should be awarded to you.
To be eligible for Workers’ Compensation, the fault of anyone party is not taken into consideration. However, the Board will throw out any claims if you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It will also throw out claims that the worker was deliberately trying to harm themselves or someone else.
