well the real purpose behind workman's comp insurance was to quantify injuries to workers as monetary loss and to limit the amount an employee might receive for either injury, dismemberment or death. It wasn't really planned to help the worker, more to help the employers not cough up unlimited sums.

Who wants $5K for their arm?
