To have a worker’s compensation case, your injury must have happened while you were arriving, leaving or working on the job. You still may have a case even if the injury was your fault. Not all injuries that occur on the job are accidents. Repetitive injuries like carpal tunnel or chronic back and limb problems may occur while performing your job duties over a long period of time. Heart conditions, lung disease, or mesothelioma may also be from working conditions.
Common workplace injuries include:
- Slips and falls
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
