Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance system that is designed to ensure that people injured on the job can receive compensation for their losses. As part of this mandate, the system does not assign fault for an on-the-job injury, so it doesn't matter who was responsible. Whether the fault belonged to the employer, the injured party, or someone else, the injured worker should be compensated regardless of the circumstances of any injury received in the course of employment.
In addition to workers' compensation, you may also be entitled to other damages for your injuries through a personal injury lawsuit.
