People are hurt on the job every year in every industry. Common types of workplace accidents include:

  • Slips, trips, and falls – Workers slip and fall on slippery or uneven surfaces.
  • Lifting injuries – When lifting heavy objects, workers can suffer strains and sprains, herniated discs, and other injuries.
  • Falling objects – Workers can be hurt by objects falling from heights at a construction site or from shelves in a warehouse.
  • Machinery accidents – When workers are struck or caught in the moving parts of machinery or equipment, they can suffer serious injuries.
  • Burns and electrical shocks – Workers can be hurt by heat, fire, chemicals, or electrical currents in the workplace.
  • Respiratory problems – Workers can have trouble breathing after exposure to harmful substances, dust, fumes, or poor air quality.
  • Repetitive motion – Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by performing repetitive tasks or improper ergonomics.
  • Vehicle accidents – Workers can be injured in crashes involving company vehicles, forklifts, or other machinery.
  • Occupational illnesses – Long-term health conditions can develop from exposure to toxic substances, such as asbestos or chemicals.

If you’ve been hurt on the job, you deserve workers’ compensation benefits

These benefits are designed to provide medical coverage and financial support to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. If you were hurt in the workplace, you need to notify your supervisor. You can then complete and submit Form C-3, the Employee Claim form, to open your claim for benefits.

But claims can be denied. The insurance company may decide there is not enough evidence to support your claim, or that you had a pre-existing condition. Navigating the complex claims process and building a strong case can be overwhelming, especially while you are still recovering from your injury. We can help.
