Does Compensation Depend on Whether the Employer Is at Fault?

In most personal injury lawsuits, the injured worker can only recover compensation by proving that the accident was at least partially the fault of another person. That usually means proving that another person’s negligence (or carelessness) was responsible for the injury.

That rule does not apply to workers’ compensation claims. Workers’ compensation is a no fault system.

Even if an accident is caused by the employee’s own inattention or carelessness, the employee is usually entitled to receive compensation.
