What Determines a Workers’ Compensation Injury?
Are you suffering from a work-related injury?
Do you need help filing for your workers’ compensation benefits?
Are you frustrated fighting your insurance company?
In many cases, the accident and the resulting injuries are obvious: it’s clear the accident happened at work, and that the injuries were caused by the accident.
However, in some cases, an employer or insurance adjuster may have doubts about how and where your injury happened. Make sure you understand your rights and report your injury right away. A workers' compensation lawyer can advise you on your rights.
What if my injury is incurred over time?
Many work injuries are caused by repetitive actions. For example, repetitive injuries can be caused by picking up heavy objects over a period of months or years. These types of injuries are common among maids, engineers, bellhops, and food service workers. A little damage is done each time until the injury becomes major and disabling. This is called an "occupational disease."
An injury caused by breathing in chemical fumes or dust can go unnoticed for long periods, but can cause serious, life-threatening diseases covered by workers' compensation.
Do I still qualify if I was injured off-site?
If you are at a customer's site, a vendor location or any other location as a part of your assigned work, accident injuries are usually covered by workers' compensation.
