Individuals who may have suffered injuries while at work can qualify for worker’s compensation as long as they meet the basic eligibility requirements. Even contractors, individuals paid cash, illegal aliens, employees hired though a staffing firm or through employee leasing, and on cases where the employer is not responsible for the accident and you are found at fault, worker compensation benefits may still apply to you.
