RSD/CRPS from work injury
You are confusing workers comp liability & monetary recouperation with that for civil law.
Workers comp is "no fault" and does not have open ended $$recovery nor duty to make worker whole. It's not subject to civil or tort law criteria.
Both employer and employee share the burden and costs of a work injury.
Benefits are limited, specific, and fixed by state law.
By having comp insurance, employer is protected from civil liability.
You are entitled to benefits without having the delays of litigation and the diificulties of trying to prove negligence.

workers comp does not have benefits for those that have to change their career.
your permanent impairments are rated; the greater the impairment the higher the rating.
you don't have to settle anything; they will automatically rate you and begin impairment payments.
workers comp has no separate benefit for pain and suffering due to being "drug along"; pain is part of your impairment rating.
Work comp benefits are your exclusive remedy from Your employer for a work injury.
you can find out more here

........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
