Workplace Accident Claims
Accidents at work can result in serious, life-changing injuries. From everyday work accidents to life-altering construction accidents, workers’ compensation was meant to offset the costs of such injuries and cover any related medical costs. However, Workers’ Compensation does not cover “general damages.”
General damages include items like pain and suffering. Workers’ Compensation generally does cover the following:
- Payment of medical expenses for treatment related to the personal injury
- Settlement for severe disfigurement or scars
- Compensation for specific losses like loss of a limb or appendage
- Physical therapy and vocational rehabilitation programs
- Death benefits
Workers’ Compensation claims are lengthy and fraught with rules and requirements. However, with rare exceptions, injured workers that suffered personal injuries are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits regardless of how the accident occurs.
An accident that is not the fault of the employer, employee, or co-worker, may qualify for a third-party personal injury claim. A third-party claim is in addition to a Workers’ Compensation claim. A third-party lawsuit can include not only compensation for economic damages but also non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
What Are Common Types of Workplace Injuries?
Not all workplace injuries are the result of construction accidents or heavy industry labor. Some of the most serious workplace injuries result from simple falls, mistakes, or even particles in the air like asbestos.
Common workplace injuries include:
- Electrical shock
- Hit by a falling object
- Eye injury
- Loss of hearing
- Skin or lung disorders such as mesothelioma
- Broken bones
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Wrongful deaths
There are steps to take for victims of workplace injuries. They are as follows:
- Report the injury to a supervisor.
- Seek medical care. Inform the doctor, hospital, or clinic that the injury is a workplace injury.
- File for Workers’ Compensation.
- Contact an accident attorney.
