Suffering an injury at work can adversely affect your lifestyle and your finances. Stacks can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
Being injured at your workplace, during any travel you do for your employment, or during a work break, entitles you to compensation. Unlike other forms of personal injury claims, you do not need to prove fault to receive this compensation.
The Workers Compensation Act protects you from the financial loss that your injury causes, whether from medical bills or loss of wages in your employment. To claim workers compensation you only need to be able to show that the conditions of your employment were a "significant contributing factor" to causing your injury, whether your injury is physical, mental or psychological (such as severe stress or feeling overworked). Workers compensation also covers you if the primary income earner of your household has died or becomes severely injured due to a workplace accident.
Examples of workplace injuries include:
- Broken bones or cuts
- Back pain from lifting heavy objects
- Aggravation of a pre-existing problem
- Psychological disorders directly relating to your work (depression, feeling run down, stress)
- A disease caused by work conditions (diseases from breathing dust or asbestos)
- Death due to an injury or disease related to the workplace
