Common Types of Workers’ Compensation Claims

Work injuries and illnesses are common and often result from falls, repetitive motions, manual materials handling, slips and falls, and motor vehicle accidents.

  • Falls are a common occupational hazard for workers and result in broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and sometimes death. Causes can include defective equipment, unsafe work conditions, and carelessness
  • Repetitive motion injuries are the result of performing the same movement over and over again for an extended period. These injuries lead to bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis. Repetitive motion injuries are currently the most reported work injury
  • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries. Back injuries commonly result from carrying, holding, lifting, lowering or placing manual loads
  • Slips and falls at work can cause broken bones, head injuries or musculoskeletal injuries. These types of injuries are common results of construction workplace accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents while on work-related errands result in any number of accident injuries

Who Can I Sue for a Work Injury Claim?

Workers’ compensation covers all medical expenses necessary for diagnosing and treating an employee’s work injury or illness, including doctor appointments, prescriptions, surgery, and medical equipment. Employees are also entitled to vocational rehabilitation benefits and compensation for lost wages while off work. The benefit amount is typically two-thirds of an employee’s weekly wage.

However, workers’ compensation does not cover personal injuries or punitive damages. There are situations where a worker can recover these damages in a civil lawsuit. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Your employer specifically and directly harms you;
  • Your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance;
  • A workplace injury results from a defective machine or piece of equipment. The employee can potentially seek damages from the manufacturer of the equipment;
  • The employee is exposed to toxic substances and suffers from cumulative long-term effects, including cancers, neurological damage, and lung diseases. The employee can file a toxic tort claim against the manufacturer.

What to Do After a Work Injury

There are steps to take if you suffer an injury while performing job-related duties, including:

  • Report the injury to your employer immediately by following internal procedures;
  • Seek treatment for your injury right away;
  • Inform any physician that your injury occurred on the job. Describe the incident that caused your injury and the symptoms you experience, including any pain or restricted abilities;
  • Keep track of expenses and missed work including receipts from doctors’ visits, lab tests, surgeries, medication, or medical equipment like crutches. Your medical records and receipts are vital for building your claim and making sure you receive compensation;
  • Meet with a work injury attorney. A work injury attorney can assess your situation and help you gather evidence to prove your claim.
