Work place injuries can occur from an unexpected accident and one of the most common injury an employee can suffer from in the work place is a back injury.

Before Workers Compensation Law came into existence, workers used to depend on personal health insurance to recover from their work place accident injury. In some cases, the insurance coverage was provided for by their employer. However, handling the situation this way was not all that useful, as this didn’t cover all the financial aspects associated with the injury and most often left the injured worker in a dire financial crisis. Nowadays, employers equip themselves with workers compensation insurance to maintain their own and their employees’ interests.
