When people talk about Workers’ Compensation claims, the topic is typically about a sudden injury or accident on the job. These are the obvious workplace injuries that we think of when discussing a Work Comp claim. What you hear less about are conditions that slowly become worse until the employee is in too much pain to continue with their typical job duties. Some are gradual enough to ignore for some time, but that nagging pain could be something serious that requires medical attention.
All Workplaces Are Subject To Employee Injury
Construction sites. That is the first thing that comes to mind when talking about a sudden workplace injury, like a fall from a high place, back strain from lifting heavy objects, or slipping and falling in a hazardous work area. But, there are those injuries that are sustained in the most unexpected settings, like an office, a restaurant, or a hotel.
If you work in an office and your forearm is killing you every time you click that mouse, you may want to have yourself examined for carpal tunnel syndrome. If you work in a restaurant and notice your knee hurts a little more every time you twist and lift that bus tub or rack of dishes, you may want to have that looked at too. Doing repetitive tasks at work can wear on a body, and if your job is responsible for the injury, you may be able to claim Workers’ Compensation benefits.
