An office worker that slips and falls, a construction worker that is injured in a sudden accident, a truck driver that is involved in an accident and all other injuries that are the result of an accident are covered.

Injuries from Repeated Exposure

  • You may have been required to perform repetitive motions on the job, whether lifting, typing, or were exposed to toxic chemicals for a long period of time, hearing damage or similar situation. Injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cases of loss of hearing due to high decibels in the workplace, back injuries that affect warehouse workers, and other similar cases are also covered under workers' compensation, and eligible for benefits.

  • Although these injuries are very real, they can be more difficult to prove. How the claim is presented is of great importance, as generally it may be decided that the stress was related to a personal situation, rather than a work-related situation. Any claim related to emotional or mental injuries must be carefully managed by an attorney.
