Workers’ compensation covers a broad range of injuries as long as they happened at work or are due to your employment.
This can include physical injuries like back strains, broken bones, soft tissue damage, burns, and psychological conditions like anxiety disorders, depression, and PTSD.
It also includes injuries that occurred over time like repetitive strain injury (RSI); late onset injuries like diseases which only manifest years after prolonged exposure to certain chemicals; aggravations or pre-existing conditions; and also, death from a work-related injury or disease.
