Not all work injuries are the result of an accident. Injuries can develop slowly, over a long period of time, simply from doing your job. These are known as occupational injuries. An employee who suffers from an occupational injury is entitled to workers' compensation.
Employees injured at work, whether in an accident or over time as a part of their jobs, are entitled to workers' comp benefits. These benefits can help you cover the cost of your medical expenses and treatment as well as your lost wages if you are unable to work.
