    Default Am I Entitled to Pay for Missing 1 Day Due to Work Injury

    I was injured at work on wensday, a nail gun was dropped on my head.
    As a result I had to take the rest of the day off and could not work thursday. Workers comp wont pay unless i have more than 3 days off, and I asked my boss if he was going to pay me, he said no he was not. Am I entitled to get paid for missing a day as a result of his negligence? Thanks

    No, worker comp is no fault, each state has different waiting periods but 3 days sounds usual.
