For workers in Oregon and elsewhere, it can be extremely detrimental to miss work. While individuals can get sick and injured at work, requiring days off to recover, many of them suffer serious injuries that require extended leaves and ongoing medical care. This can be financially disruptive. The inability to work means the inability to make an income; thus, causing financial problems. An injured worker’s financial stability can be even further shaken when medical bills begin to pile up. In these matters, workers’ compensation can be an extremely valuable benefit.
