Numerous Injuries

There are many injuries that can qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, including:

  • Repetitive stress injuries: There are numerous tasks that many workers engage in where they have to perform the same physical motion repeatedly. Over months and years, these repeated movements can cause significant pain and injuries that can range from carpal tunnel due to office work and typing to serious back and neck injuries from more physically demanding factory and industrial work.
  • Back, neck and spine injuries: While they are especially common in more physically demanding jobs like construction and factory work, back and spinal injuries can happen to anyone at work.
  • Occupational illnesses and toxic exposure: There are numerous occupations that involve exposure to dangerous chemicals and unsafe environments. One example is mesothelioma, which is common for people exposed to asbestos in their daily work.

These are just a few examples of workplace injuries that could be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. It is important to note that some workplace injuries are 100% the result of accidents or circumstances on the job, whereas other injuries result from pre-existing conditions that are aggravated or accelerated by the workplace.
