Can my workers' compensation award be increased or decreased?

In a recent post on this blog, we noted that workers' compensation is generally the exclusive remedy for injured workers in Wisconsin. Although an injured worker may, in some circumstances, sue a fellow employee for work-related injuries, and may sue third parties responsible for any such injuries, the employer's responsibility is to provide workers' compensation without respect to fault.

Not all workers' comp claims involve catastrophic injuries

Throughout the United States, hundreds of thousands of employees perform workplace duties on a daily basis. Jobs vary greatly, and some are far more dangerous than others. Employers are typically obligated to purchase insurance meant to provide benefits to workers who are injured on the job. However, not all workers' compensation claims involve catastrophic injuries.

Workers' compensation costs should remain with the employer

Workers' compensation is an easily identifiable cost for most employers. Their payments of premiums stand out from many other costs that they have little control over. They can only reduce their electric bill or gas bill to a point. They could lay off workers and may save money, but they may not be able to manage their workload.
