If you have been injured or have fallen ill and you believe that it is work related, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Being able to identify when a situation is covered under the AOE/COE requirement can get tricky. It is important to understand why situation may or may not be covered.
In a recent article, Nolo breaks down some common work related situations where your injury or illness may occur:
- Lunch Breaks
- Company Events
- Illness, Cumulative Injuries, and Stress Related Conditions
If you are still unsure if your injury or illness is eligible for workers’ compensation, speaking with your attorney is a good idea.
