What is Work Comp and How Can WICA Help?

Steve Wagner

Workers’ Compensation covers any injury or illness that is work-related. For example, it could be an injury sustained on the job like a broken arm from a fall, a shock injury from electrical work, or any other type of immediate injury. Injuries sustained could also be ones that develop over time: carpal tunnel syndrome, lung cancer related to asbestos, or even stress related issues.

Workers’ Compensation is an agreed payment between employers and employees that protects both parties, cares for injuries sustained, and leaves employers without the constant threat of a lawsuit from an injured employee.

Work Comp payments don’t always cover everything they need to cover, however, and sometimes employers can be difficult to work with when it comes to handing out large payments to employees.

The Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) provides employees with a simpler way of receiving the payments they deserve without having to go through a common law court to settle compensation claims.
