Workers’ compensation requires employers to give benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses. Every state has its own laws, but if you can prove you suffered the injury or ailment due to work, you’re often eligible for benefits.
Workers’ compensation isn’t based on fault. The injury may be the fault of a vendor, a fellow employee, or yourself.
Injuries experienced at work or those suffered while traveling long or short distances for work may qualify for workers’ compensation. Injuries experienced while operating a company vehicle also often qualify for benefits.
Workers’ compensation issues aren’t always due to an accident. You may develop an overuse problem, like back pain or tendonitis, because of repetitive work activities. For example, carpal tunnel syndrome that developed due to frequent typing and poor keyboard ergonomics can fall under workers’ compensation.
