Injuries at work can be common or quite rare, depending on the industry in which you work. Each year, employers across the state report hundreds of injuries that occur in the workplace, with the majority of those resulting in some form of workers’ compensation claim. Based on statistics, there are some injuries that are more commonly seen in workers’ compensation claims than others. It is an employer’s responsibility to ensure they provide their employees with a safe work environment. Each employee also has their own responsibility to take caution, follow their training and not injure or risk the lives of fellow employees. While there are accidents that can be considered random, most of the injuries that lead to workers’ compensation claims are easily preventable.
Regardless of how you were injured, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if your injury occurred at work or while performing duties related to your job.
