Which Injuries Can a Person File a Workers' Comp Claim for?

When someone sustains an injury while on the job, employees are entitled to workers’ compensation coverage.

Workers’ comp is in place to assist paying for any lost wages, rehabilitation, medical expenses, and the pain and suffering that comes along with the injury.

Between continuous motion, heavy lifting, and dangerous conditions, accidents in the workplace may happen at any time. If you or a loved one has sustained an injury while on the clock, you may be able to file a workers’ comp claim.

Workers’ compensation claims are typically filed for injuries such as:

  • Back injuries

  • Slip & fall injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Construction site injuries

  • Coal mining injuries

  • Oil field injuries

  • Catastrophic injuries

Catastrophic injuries are typically those that are more severe and result in long-term damage. This includes burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, amputations, and more.
