Workers' comp is a no-fault system, which means that you're covered regardless of who is at fault including yourself. While this is the general rule, it doesn't always apply equally to every case. Knowingly disobeying safety practices could, in some cases, invalidate your workers' comp claim. To make matters more difficult, even though workers’ comp is a no-fault system, employers and insurance companies often do whatever they can to escape liability, including trying to discredit your injuries by claiming they weren’t work-related. This is why having a knowledgeable workers’ comp lawyer on your side will be to your advantage.
