Most common workplace injuries are covered by workers' compensation, which requires your employer to pay medical bills and reimburse you for lost wages if you are hurt on the job. Common workplace injuries include:
What Types of Injuries Are Not Covered By Workers' Compensation?
Workers' compensation injury benefits may be available even if the work injury was caused by carelessness on the part of the employee or employer. However, you may not be entitled to workers' compensation injury benefits if:
- You were drunk or under the influence of illegal drugs when the work injury occurred
- You inflicted the injury on yourself or started a fight that led to the injury
- You were on the premises but not "on the job" when the injury occurred
- The work injury occurred while you were violating a company policy or procedure
Note, though, that you are covered by workers' compensation and eligible for benefits any time that you are injured in an activity while furthering the interests of your employer (e.g., in activities ranging from driving a vehicle while on company business to participating in a company social event, such as a picnic).
