Who is eligible for workers' compensation?

The purpose of the workers' compensation system is to allow both employers and employees to quickly settle claims related to work-related injuries and avoid a lengthy court process. Many workers in Wisconsin who become injured in connection with their jobs are eligible to claim workers' compensation benefits. However, just because you sustain an injury on the job, it does not automatically follow that you should receive workers' compensation.

What is a muscle strain?

Muscle strains are among the most common workplace injuries that you may sustain in Wisconsin. According to the Mayo Clinic, muscle strains occur when a muscle or tendon becomes stretched too far while in use. If you do not recognize the phrase "muscle strain," you may be more familiar with the term "pulled muscle," which describes the same condition.
