If you have been injured at work or have become ill due to exposure, your employer is required by law to provide Workers’ Compensation coverage. This coverage is designed to provide the injured employee with medical care and potentially lost wages related to the injury or illness.
Injuries and exposure cases can come in all sizes. Some of the most common include broken and or crushed bones, injuries to the back, neck and or spine, cumulative trauma, occupational diseases, mental and physical stresses, and internal injuries.
Here are just some examples of INJURIES and EXPOSURES:
Trip and fall injury even if it happens in the employer’s parking lot
Tool or equipment injury
Heavy lifting injury
Repetitive movement injury including carpal tunnel, stress and or strains
Car accident injury while driving for work which could include to and from work
Burn injuries including chemical burns
Work place violence injuries
Fluke accident injuries such as falling boxes and or hit by debris or equipment
Medical conditions such as breathing problems and or blood pressure
Mental conditions such as stress and or sleeping problems
Eye injury or vision impairment
Everything that happens from the moment an injury occurs, to when you become aware that your job could be the cause of your repetitive injury or exposure illness, and or even when you notify your employer about the injury or illness could all make a difference in how your individual case may be handled.
