Many employers go above and beyond to make sure their employees are safe, but workplace injuries can and do take place. If you were injured or became ill while working and your work duties on the job caused this, you should file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ comp provides lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, and medical expenses in connection to that injury.
There are many ways you can get hurt or sick on the job; some of these include slip and fall accidents, body strain, an accident while using machinery, and more. Below are a few causes of work injuries.
If your injury was due to your work duties or your employer was negligent in keeping you safe, you should file a workers’ compensation claim. If your injury was the result of a manufacturing or a design defect, it falls under third-party liability. Other third-party claims include injuries that take place at another business while you’re working or by a reckless third party action.
