Workers’ Compensation is “No Fault” Insurance
In a Workers’ Compensation matter, neither the injured worker nor the employer is determined to be at fault. The benefits a worker receives is not decreased by the worker’s carelessness, nor increased by an employer’s negligence. However, an injured employer may lose the right to Workers’ Compensation benefits if the injury results from the worker’s intoxication from drugs or alcohol. Similarly, if the injured employee is hurt by his own actions or inactions intended to cause harm to himself or someone else, the employee may forfeit his right to recover under the Worker’s Compensation laws. No fault insurance for injured workers with an on the job injury protects both the injured employee and the employer.
