A work injury can have significant impact on you and your family. Injured workers often face the risk of losing their source of income, the ability to provide for their loved ones, or to return to lead a good life after a severe injury that results in disability. Some injured workers want nothing but to return to work. Others might not be able to go back to their job because of medical limitations and require retraining or vocational rehabilitation to start a new career. For those that suffer partial or full disability, additional medical and financial benefits must be obtained in order to ensure that they can recover from their injury and continue with their life.
