Workers’ Compensation Specific and Cumulative Injuries
Some on the job injuries can be traced to a specific event such as a broken leg caused by a fall. Other injuries (known as to as cumulative injuries) occur over time, such as back pain or leg pain caused by repetitive lifting or movement. Some occupational problems stem from repeated exposure to dangerous materials or chemicals on the job.
Both types of injuries can compensate an employee for workers’ compensation benefits. These injuries present a number of intricate legal issues when it comes to maximizing workers’ compensation benefits.
