Workers' compensation describes the "no fault" system providing medical treatment and rehabilitation for injured workers. This system involves the trade-off of the right to sue for damages against the public interest in making sure that all injured workers receive adequate medical treatment and rehabilitation. In most situations, workers are barred from suing their employers, but may obtain compensation for work-related injuries without regard to fault.
