Workers' compensation laws are designed to ensure employees who are injured in a work-related activity to receive compensation for lost wages, medical care, and if necessary, vocational rehabilitation. Worker's compensation legislation requires the employer to furnish a reasonably safe place to work, suitable equipment, rules and instructions when they are reasonably necessary, and reasonably competent foremen and superintendents. The employer is liable for an employee's acts of negligence, for the employer's own gross negligence, and for extraordinary risks of work.

SPECIFIC INJURIES

This type of injury has a certain date or incident which caused your injury. It usually is caused by one specific accident or event that resulted in some type of injury. These types of injuries can seem simple, but can often lead to other types of injuries or distresses.

02

CUMULATIVE INJURIES

This type of injury doesn’t have a certain date that caused your injury. It is usually caused by a repetitive & constant movement that over time has resulted in an injury. Even though cumulative injuries are often overlooked and denied, we are ready to assist you.

WORK INJURY TYPES

Orthopedic Injury.jpg

Work-Related Injury

Orthopaedical

Orthopedic Injuries are the most common type of injuries associated with a Work Comp claim. These include various types of injuries to the human body such as joint or bone injuries to the wrist, hand, knee, ankle or shoulder. Injury to the neck, back or spinal also fall under this classification, but these are more serious injuries that can cause long-term disability and can affect other body parts. Carpal tunnel and plantar fasciitis are also examples of orthopedic injuries.

Work-Related Injury

Psychological

Psychological injuries are the most overlooked work-related injury. Even though there could be many causes to these injuries, they are often a compensable consequence of an orthopedic injury. However, there are occasions when an employer or type of employment brings about stress, anxiety, or even depression to a debilitating level. Emotional, discriminatory and stress-related matters are often considered part of a psychological injury as well.  

Internal Work Injury.jpg

Work-Related Injury

Internal

Internal injuries can include any injury which has affected the inside of your body excluding bone injuries. These can include hypertension, organ damage, cancer, and many other cascading injuries such as high blood pressure, GERD, digestive and bowels, stress, depression and even anxiety.  These types of injuries can be caused by a variety of situations such as chemical exposures, not having/wearing the right Personal Protective Equipment and even consumption.

Work-Related Injury

Catastrophic

Catastrophic injuries are considered to be the most serious, with long-term effects on the injured worker’s life. These injuries leave the worker suffering from permanent disability/disabilities for the rest of their life. Unfortunately, with some of these work-related injuries, it even results in the employee’s death. Because of the nature and long-term effects on the worker and the family, it is recommended to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
