Workplace Accidents and Injuries

Workers’ compensation provides wage benefits and medical benefits to people who have suffered a work-related injury or illness. Injured workers may receive benefits in a variety of circumstances:

  • Work-related accident injuries
  • Occupational illness or disease
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Aggravation of a pre-existing condition
  • Injuries from the performance of work duties (e.g., injured back, knee, wrist or shoulder)

If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, the best way to ensure the protection of your rights is to contact an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. A workers’ compensation attorney can answer your questions, explain the process and advocate on your behalf for the full benefits you are entitled to receive.

What You Should Know

Workers’ compensation is an insurance-based system. Injured workers are not required to prove that their employer was negligent in order to receive workers’ compensation benefits. If you were injured by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker), you may have a basis to pursue a third-party liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim.

Many injured workers assume that they are only entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for a sudden injury that has resulted from a work accident. Fortunately, workers’ compensation also provides benefits to workers who have sustained injuries as a result of daily work activities. For example, you may be entitled to benefits for carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition of the wrist that commonly results from frequent typing and other repetitive daily work activities.
