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