Many state workers' compensation laws do not allow an injured employee to recover for pain and suffering resulting from a work-related injury. As an injured employee, you are, however, entitled to certain benefits specified under each state's law. The benefits generally include income benefits for temporary disability and permanent disability, medical care expenses and sometimes vocational rehabilitation benefits. Because workers' compensation laws vary from state to state, it is important that you understand your rights under the laws of the state where you are employed. For more information on workers' compensation, contact a qualified attorney.
