the different types of work-related injuries that are usually covered
under workers' comensation insurance:

- Repetitive stress injuries caused by repeating the same motions over and
Aggravation of pre-existing injuries due to workplace environment
- Hearing loss or other sensory loss
- Wrongful death in the workplace
- Stress-related injuries
Even if you may have caused your accident through some negligence of your
own, this does not automatically disqualify you from receiving workers'
compensation benefits for your injuries. However, it's important that
you consult with a professional workers' comensation lawyer to find
out how your actions may affect your case.

payment if you are unable to work a full work week
