Workplace Injuries FAQs
A work or industrial injury applies to any injury an employee sustains while performing regular duties associated with the job. Any injury obtained by an employee that requires the injured worker to seek medical treatment or time off work can be considered for worker’s compensation benefits.
Types of work injuries
There are various types of work injuries. They may be sudden or develop over a period of time.
Qualifying for worker’s compensation benefits
There must be a connection between the accident or environment that caused the injury and the scope of employment duties. If you received your injuries doing work that is not part of your normal work duties, you will most likely not be eligible for worker’s compensation benefits. Injuries and illnesses from your work environment are typically only covered when they arise out of (and in the course of) employment.
