  • Workman's Compensation Insurance is specifically for work related injuries. State laws control the way WCI is regulated, meaning the requirements that are needed to collect a claim, the amount of the claim and so forth. Not all employer's are required to participate in WCI therefore not all employee's would have access to the program.

  • In the UK an employer is responsible for injuries caused in the workplace if the employer was in some way negligent or breached other UK regulations. For example - if a workman hurt his foot due to a defective work machine - the employer would be liable to pay compensation.
