What Is An Injury?

If you have experienced any kind of injury while at work or are suffering from ongoing pain or illness that you believe to be caused by your job, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim and receive benefits. This includes both physical and psychiatric pain.

What Constitutes A Work-Related Injury?

There are two main types of workplace injuries: cumulative trauma injuries and one-time injuries.

A regular, one-time injury is when you have been hurt in a specific incident. This could include falls, car accidents, heavy lifting accidents, trauma to the head or a catastrophic injury. A cumulative trauma injury refers to pain or illness that is the result of the ongoing demands of the job. This includes carpal tunnel injury, orthopedic pain from years of heavy lifting or manual labor, loss of hearing due to years at a noisy job, respiratory illness from years around toxic fumes and high blood pressure from the demands of the job.

If you have been injured in a one-time accident at work or suffer because of years on the job, contact our Glendale, California, law office at 800-391-8431.
