Characteristics of nonfatal occupational injuries among U.S. workers with and without disabilities

Workers' compensation
Poor quality health care and the growing disability problem in the United States The proportion of working age citizens permanently removed from the workforce has dramatically increased over the past 30 years, straining both Federal and State disability systems designed as a safety net to protect them.
