Workplace Accidents and Injury Law.
A workplace injury is an injury or illness that arises out of and in the course of employment. Generally, a workplace injury occurs because the work environment is unsafe, but jobs that require repetitive or difficult movements may also cause workplace injury.
Workplace injuries include the following:
An employee who suffers a job-related injury is entitled to workers’ compensation insurance or other funding (paid for by employers) that provides medical care and cash benefits for employees who suffer a job-related injury, sickness, or disability.
Although workers' compensation benefits are intended to serve as the primary source of financial recovery for people injured at work, the workers' comp system generally prohibits an employee from suing the employer for negligence resulting in a severe accident. However claims against the manufacturers of dangerous and defective products of all kinds gives injured workers an alternative approach to accident compensation that covers a much broader range of damages.
