An injury at work can be sudden and horrifying. On the other hand, it can be gradual and slowly happen over time – but that doesn’t change the fact that yes, it can be devastating and rob you of your livelihood. Workplace injuries can take on many forms, whether they arose from a catastrophic injury due to an equipment malfunction or you developed carpal tunnel syndrome from laboring over your computer for eight hours per day. The one thing that they have in common, however, is that they can prevent you from being able to work and provide for your family.
Workers comp does cover nearly all workplace injuries. This includes injuries that may have happened outside of your job, such as if you were transporting a coworker to a jobsite, or you were running errands for your boss and got into an automobile collision. You also don’t have to sustain an injury to get workers’ comp benefits. If you have gotten sick at work, such as from inhalants or other you have a stress-related illness from your job (such as a heart condition or a digestive disorder), workers’ comp will also cover that.
Workers’ comp will also help pay your medical bills if you are out of work. This includes surgeries, medicine, and doctor’s bills. You are also entitled to a disability paycheck while you are unable to work, which should help you make ends meet if you are in rehabilitation or recovery from your illness or injury.
