What Kind of Injuries Are Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Depending on the nature of your job, you may be susceptible to certain accidents or injuries as you work. While employers are legally required to ensure your safety while on the job, this isn’t always the case as mistakes can easily happen, leaving the victim severely injured and unable to work. Workers’ compensation is meant to protect workers in this very situation, though many employers can be resistant to paying financial compensation even when required and necessary. The best protection against this scenario begins with you finding a skilled and trusted workers’ compensation attorney like the attorneys at Whiteman, Hamilton & Conklin, LLC.
The following are some of the most common injuries covered under workers’ compensation, including:
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
- Broken or crushed bones
- Sprained joints
- Slip and fall injuries on the job
- Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel
- Muscle injuries
- Severe head trauma
- Full or partial amputation injuries
- Death of a spouse or family member due to a physical work injury
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation benefits required under the law include hospital and medical bills, disability payments, payments for “permanent partial disability,” and certain other expenses incurred as a result of your work injury.
