There are a wide range of injuries that can happen in a hazardous environment, from broken bones, to strains, to slips, to dislocations, and more. When an accident occurs at work and the knee or shoulder are injured, it needs to be reported immediately. This immediate response can help prove that it was related to a specific on-the-job incident or activity.
If the injury develops over time as a result of repetitive stress, it can be more difficult to demonstrate a connection to a specific activity. However, an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you receive coverage as long as a work-related task resulted in an injury. Even workers with conditions that existed before an incident causing injury may be covered under workers’ compensation or be entitled to a claim.
