According to OSHA, there were nearly 3.5 million workplace injuries or illnesses in 2017 alone. More than a million of those injuries caused the employee to lose time from work. In addition to pain, disability, and financial strain these injuries cause, the injured workers are faced with stress and confusion associated with navigating the varied, complex, and bureaucratic systems in place across the country to adjudicate workers’ compensation claims.
