Employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to provide benefits for their employees if they are injured on the job. Most people believe that receiving workers’ comp benefits is a relatively straightforward process after a workplace injury. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Insurance companies have a lot of power. They also have a lot of money, and they do not like to part with it.
