Qualifying for Compensation for Common Workers Compensation Injuries
In order to qualify to make a claim for common workers’ compensation injuries, you must prove a causal relationship between your job and the medical condition you are claiming compensation for. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, an injury or illness qualifies as work-related if it occurred while at work or if your exposure at work led to the development of the condition or the aggravation of a pre-existing condition.
It is often easy to establish a connection when an incident has occurred at your work site. However, making connections for illnesses that have developed over years is much harder. While proving fault in a workers’ compensation claim, showing this connection is vital for recovering compensation.
