Workers’ compensation is a familiar topic on every employee’s mind. Even if you have never been the victim of a work injury, you probably have a basic understanding of the steps needed to get adequate medical attention and benefits.
That being said, for as vast as the internet is, there aren’t many good resources that have compiled facts and helpful statistics that fully illustrate the scope of workers’ compensation in the United States. Until now.
We’ve compiled an extensive list of some of the facts and statistics below, as they pertain to work injury and workers’ compensation claims in the United States and California.
