Injuries Covered By Workers' Compensation Anchorage Lawyer

A common misconception about workers' compensation is that it is only for people who have an accident at work: an object falls on them, or they fall from a height, or their vehicle collides with another or they are injured by a noxious chemical.

Workers' comp also covers every kind of workplace injury, including such events as:

  • Workplace violence
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Diseases like COPD that develop over time
  • Gradual loss of vision or hearing
  • Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel or tennis elbow

Workers' comp even covers injuries to telecommuters working at home, pre-existing conditions that are made worse on the job and psychological problems such as post-traumatic stress or dangerous anxiety syndromes.

At Rehbock & Wilson, our typical client does have a discreet injury that occurs all at once: cuts, broken bones, amputations, injuries on the factory floor. But we are experienced in the full gamut of workplace injuries.

We pride ourselves on identifying the full cost of injuries. For example, a truck driver who is involved in a collision that results in the death of another person will require psychological therapy as well as emergency ward care. We make certain that this extended kind of rehabilitation is included in the workers' comp claim.
