Workers’ Comp: Not Just For Those With Physically Demanding Jobs

Most people think of workers' compensation claims as being for construction workers, truck drivers or people with labor-intensive jobs. While accidents certainly happen in those environments, many low-intensity jobs also result in workplace accidents.

Despite their appearance, these injuries can be just as severe and disabling as more sudden accident injuries. Unfortunately, they are also more difficult to document and demonstrate to insurance providers who are liable to compensate injured workers.
