Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7 (NIV)
Every year, one out of eleven American workers is injured on the job. Many recover completely, but hundreds of thousands of work days are lost by individuals on workers' compensation. This is a complex and poorly understood system, and in spite of the billions of dollars spent on it each year, many workers' cases fall through the cracks, with little hope of positive resolution.
This book was written to assist injured employees to gain an understanding of the system and to help themselves through the process of recovery from an injury on the job.
Additionally, medical and rehabilitation providers, employers, and insurance personnel will find the book helpful in their dayto-day interaction with injured workers and other "players" in workers' compensation.
