When a person is injured at his/her place of employment, it is considered a workers compensation injury. These injuries include damages from an accident, such as a slip and fall, or an illness caused by a workplace environment. When filing a claim for workers compensation, it is required the injury is directly related to the working conditions and in most cases it must take place on the property of the employer.
This may be an accident that are results from unsafe working conditions or exposure to harmful substances. Psychological injuries that result from extremely high stressed working conditions may also be viable workers compensation claims. When filing for workers compensation benefits for a psychological injury it must be shown, by the employee, that the employer did not take the necessary precautions to try and protect the worker. Compensation will include lost wages and reimbursement for medical expenses.
