It is disheartening to see the amount of violence that has reared its ugly head in our schools today. Teachers, support staff, administrators and the students themselves are ever-increasingly exposed to risks on the job that many workers will never know. School districts have to maintain the safety of everyone, but sometimes the unexpected can happen. No worker goes to their job expecting to be in an accident. When a worker is injured on the job, he or she deserves to get the maximum benefits and compensation for their injuries and have unrestricted access to the highest quality of medical care – especially if they are injured through no fault of their own. Workers’ compensation claims can be tricky for workers who are injured on the job. Sometimes there are limitations of one kind or another that an injured worker can claim.
