What Is A Workers’ Compensation Injury?
According to the workers’ compensation statute, a workers’ compensation injury is any injury that occurs within the course and scope of your employment. It could be the result of a one-time incident, like a fall in the workplace; or it could also be an injury that develops over time, which is referred to as a repetitive stress injury. In some cases, it is an illness or medical condition that results from exposure to chemicals or other hazards in the workplace, which is referred to as an occupational disease.
