Compensation is a way to make up for something that has been lost. You can receive compensation for any injuries you have that prevented you to miss work and therefore lose hours. You can also receive compensation for loss of property. In worker’s comp situations, if a worker is harmed and can no longer work then the worker and their family could receive compensation. If you feel that you have lost money or property because of an accident or someone else, make you sure have documented proof of the money or assets you have lost and seek legal advice.
