Claire is a senior caregiver that severely twisted her ankle while going down the stairs on the job. She went to urgent care and was told she had a serious sprain and needed time to heal. She would need to stay off her feet as much as possible for the next three weeks. The clerk at the doctor’s office explained that she should file a worker’s compensation claim to ensure the urgent care bills were paid. Claire also learned workers compensation insurance policies also generally cover payments made to employees for lost wages while they are out of work.
