Injury at work
Injuries and medical conditions are considered work-related when they arise from your employment or occur during the course of your employment. This can be while you are actively working, present at a work location, travelling for work, or another circumstance associated with your job.
Common injuries include:
- Slip and falls
- Strike with moving object
- Vehicle accidents
- Conditions from a repetitive motion
- Heatstroke and hypothermia
- Workplace violence
When you have been injured on the job, the general method of recovery is to make a claim under worker’s compensation. This type of claim can be pursued at the same time as one against a third party, often a negligent party. For example, if you are injured in a car accident caused by another person while driving a company vehicle, you may have a claim under worker’s compensation and a personal injury claim against the other driver.
Because workplace injury claims can involve multiple responsible parties and sometimes extensive research, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side to handle the matter. If you have been injured on the job, your first priority should be seeking medical treatment to treat and document your injuries. Second, you need to report the injury to your employer within thirty days of the incident. It is not uncommon for initial claims to be denied, so keep in mind that a denial can be challenged. An experienced attorney can review your case and assist with the appeals process so you will begin receiving compensation for your injuries.
