Most injured workers surprisingly do not know, nor would their employers voluntarily divulge the information, that the Workers’ Compensation Board is not the only place an injured worker can turn for compensation after a debilitating injury. Workers’ Compensation prevents a worker from bringing a personal injury claim against his or her employer but does not mean that the worker cannot make a claim for lost wages and medical expenses incurred as a result of an on the job injury.
