Are All Injuries Covered By Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to help employees recover their lost wages when they are injured while at work. However, the guidelines for these benefits can be confusing and complicated. You may not know what types of injuries are covered by your company.

What Are The General Rules?

In general, workers’ compensation covers all work-related injuries. That’s to say, any injury sustained that is connected to an employment requirement or condition. Some of the most common examples include carpal tunnel syndrome caused by too many hours at the computer or taking a fall off a ladder while working on a job site.

Other Considerations

Most of these injuries occur during work hours, while you’re doing something on behalf of your employer. However, workers’ compensation can encompass more conditions such as:

  • Injuries sustained at company-related events such as work parties or other social events
  • Injuries occurring during lunch breaks on company property
  • Injuries connected to employment in a third-party location (i.e. lunch with a client at a restaurant)
  • Injuries that occur on the road such as an accident in a company vehicle
  • Mental health injuries such as anxiety or depression
  • Preexisting conditions made worse by your job

If you suffered an injury while at work, or doing something affiliated with your job, chances are you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to help with your expenses due to lost wages. You may want to consult with an attorney to get a better understanding of your situation and to ensure you receive the proper compensation.
