What does workers' compensation cover?

Workers' compensation is not limited to the cuts, burns, bruises, and broken bones, contrary to what many people think. In actuality, the definition of an injury for workers' compensation purposes goes much further to cover a wide range of health problems including:

  • Occupational illnesses such as skin conditions, anxiety attacks, lung disease, and asthma
  • Repetitive trauma injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis
  • Loss of vision or hearing, common in loud factory settings
    chemical poisoning.
  • Whether an employee is full-time, part-time, contractually obligated, or working on a commission basis, workers' compensation is available

Third-Party Liability Claims

The interests the workers' compensation system seeks to serve doesn't bar claims against potentially liable third parties. After first filing workers’ compensation claims, a party may file any third party tort claims that may exist and recover damages more to their advantage than any damages they may recover through workers' compensation.

Third-party claims may exist where the injury caused was the result of another company's negligence as is the case, e.g., when, in the course of performing your job as a driver, another company's driver collides with you. Third-party claims can also be found to exist if your injury is the result of a manufacturing or design defect of a product used in the course of your business.
