Understanding The Types Of Workers’ Compensation Injuries
Almost any workplace injury qualifies for workers’ compensation benefits. Qualifying injuries can include occupational illnesses, physical injuries, mental injuries and repetitive stress injuries. However, your injury or illness must be directly related to your job duties to qualify for benefits.
Common workers’ compensation injuries include:
- Spinal injuries, including neck and back injuries
- Orthopedic injuries, such as sprains, fractures and strains
- Psychological injuries, such as depression and anxiety
- Internal organ injuries, such as lung disease, heart disease, and hearing and vision loss
- Traumatic brain injuries
An injury is work-related if it happened due to your job duties or work environment and can be the result of an accident or cumulative physical or mental trauma over time. If you have concerns about whether your injury qualifies for workers’ compensation benefits, we can evaluate your claim and answer your questions.
