Types of Injuries Covered by Workers’ Compensation

Discuss Your Situation with Our Topeka Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Injured at work? Our Topeka workers’ compensation lawyer is here to help. All employers have to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. There are some basic requirements that determine whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation, which are included below.

1. You must be an employee.

It is important to note that workers’ compensation benefits do not only apply to full-time employees; seasonal and part-time employees are also eligible. However, workers’ compensation does not extend to consultants, freelancers, or independent contractors.

The distinction between being an employee or contractor can be tricky and if you believe that your employer is treating you as a contractor to deny you compensation when you function as an employee, then it is important for you to contact our Topeka workers’ compensation attorney.

2. Your injury occurred at work or was a result of job-related duties.

If the injury or illness is job-related, then it is likely covered by workers’ compensation. These types of injuries are wide-ranging and more or less all-encompassing.

Some injuries that are often eligible for workers’ compensation include:

  • Back or muscle injuries
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Most work injuries are covered by workers’ compensation because the law does not limit eligibility based on the type of injury, but rather by how the injury occurred.

Insurance carriers frequently deny legitimate claims. Please contact our office if your claim has been denied, so we can evaluate the legitimacy of your denial.
