- Your injury claim is limited by the State’s workers’ compensation statute.
- If your injury resulted from an employer’s negligent act or omission, workers’ compensation will generally cover out-of-work pay and medical bills.
- There is no recovery for pain and suffering or non-economic harm.
- If a third party is responsible for your injury, your recovery under a general tort theory is not limited by the workers’ compensation statute.
