It’s bad enough that you have to go to work every day, but what if you are injured on the job? Many occupations are prone to injuries. Construction workers, nurses, and laborers are all at significant risk for occupational injuries including sprains and strains, falls, and even electrocution. In fact, over 4,600 people were actually killed on the job in 2014. Talk about a bad day at work.
While many on-the-job injuries are obvious (such as falling off a ladder while stocking shelves), others are not so easy to prove as true work-related injuries.
Everyone is aware that falling off a ladder and breaking a leg while working is considered a work-related injury that should be covered by workers’ compensation. However, many of these other more inconspicuous injuries are often covered as well. It is extremely important to be aware of your state’s workers’ compensation laws if you ever suffer any type of injury that could potentially be work-related. Have you been hurt at work? Confused about a potential claim? The attorneys at Mckenzie & Snyder can help you navigate the process and provide a free consultation to determine if your injury may be work-related.
