What Constitutes a Work-Related Injury?
In short, work-related injuries comprise any illness, condition, or injury you sustain in the course and extent of your employment. There are two main types of workplace injuries: one-time injuries and cumulative trauma injuries.
A regular, one-time injury is when you have been hurt in a specific incident. That could include physical injuries like:
- Car accidents
- Heavy lifting accidents
- Trauma to the head
- Catastrophic injuries
Cumulative Trauma Injuries
A cumulative trauma injury refers to pain or illness that results from the ongoing demands of the job. That 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
- High blood pressure from the demands of the job
At KCNS Law Group, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your injury and put together the medical evidence needed to connect your pain to your job for a successful workers’ compensation claim. We work with skilled medical professionals to evaluate your injury and assemble the records and opinions needed to document your claim.
