Workman’s Compensation Benefits
The benefits associated with workman’s compensation claims are often limited to medical expenses and partial wage losses.

Workers’ compensation claims often comprise of:
- Relapse of pre-existing injuries
- Injuries sustained on company property or at a company-sponsored event
- Injuries caused by company-owned assets
