Did you know that most work-related injuries are covered by workers compensation insurance? Injuries that were sustained in an accident, such as a fall or mechanical malfunction are covered. Even injuries that occur from normal daily job duties are covered, such as carpal tunnel syndrome caused by too many consecutive hours at the computer, lung cancer caused by second-hand smoke at an institution permitting smoking, and all other types of repetitive trauma. By law, employers are required to minimize safety risks and make sure workers are not in danger. If you’ve been injured on the job, your employer’s insurance company has the responsibility to provide medical treatment and compensate you for missed time from work due to your injuries. They will also be responsible to pay for attendant care, if you cannot take care of all your personal needs for a period of time. Additionally, if your doctor has placed you on light duty, your employer should accommodate your restrictions. If they do not, the workers’ compensation insurance company will be responsible for compensating you while you are on light duty.
