There is nothing worse than the thought of being injured on the job and unable to provide for your family in the future. Unfortunately, this happens to many people every year.
Some people who suffer a workplace injury are lucky enough to be able to return to work after receiving treatment. Others, however, find that they are unable to return for quite some time.
If you find yourself injured and unable to work, it's time to learn more about filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Some of the most common injuries that lead to a claim include:
-- Head, back and neck injuries
-- Fractured bones
-- Joint, tendon and ligament injuries
-- Nerve injuries
-- Loss of limb
-- Hearing loss
-- Disfigurement, such as by a serious burn
-- Repetitive stress injuries
-- Chemical exposure
As you can imagine, all of these injuries could make it difficult to return to work in a timely manner.
