Why Is It Unnecessary to Prove Fault in Workers’ Compensation Cases?

The workers’ compensation system was devised as a trade-off that protects the interests of both employees and employers. Employees gain the advantage of receiving benefits for job-related injuries without proving that the employer is at fault.

In exchange, employers are not required to pay damages for pain and suffering, and benefits paid are often less than an employee would receive if the employee could sue for a personal injury.

The workers’ compensation system also processes claims more quickly and efficiently than the court system. By using an administrative system rather than a court system, workers’ compensation saves money for employers and hastens payments to injured employees.
