Workers injured on the job, or who have a workplace illness, may receive compensation through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, regardless of fault.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) a nonfatal injury or illness is workplace related if the worker is injured or becomes ill while working (not as a volunteer) for pay or other compensation. The most frequent nonfatal workplace injuries are sprains and strains, usually to the worker’s back and shoulders. Workplace injuries also include slip and falls, being struck, and equipment and motor vehicle injuries.
