Injuries that happen on the job

There are all sorts of injuries that can occur while you’re on the job, including:

Additionally, contrary to popular belief, having a pre-existing condition that was worsened because of your job may make you eligible for compensation. 

Locations can vary, too. For example, even if you get hurt during a company-sponsored event or in the break room while you’re not actually performing your job, your company is still legally responsible for your safety.

How we can help you with your claim
