IWH study: Workers’ comp benefits keep poverty low among permanently impaired workers and their families

A new study by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) looked at the earnings of injured workers and their families and found little difference between the poverty levels of permanently impaired workers and their uninjured peers. It also found workers’ compensation benefits play an important role in keeping poverty levels low for those injured at work.
