Types of Injuries Covered by Workers' Compensation
Generally, any type of work-related injury may qualify for workers' compensation insurance. Workers should be able to demonstrate that the injury resulted from a workplace hazard or work-related incident. One of the many reasons individuals turn to a legal professional for help is to accurately identify the nature of their injury and gather evidence of the incident.
Some of the most common injury claims are made for the following:
- Injuries sustained while on a work break
- Injuries caused by a company facility, machinery, etc.
- Diseases contracted by exposure to toxins in the workplace
- Injuries suffered while attending a work-sponsored activity
- Preexisting conditions worsened by the workplace environment
- Injuries brought on by mental/physical strain of increased workload/stress

- If you have suffered a work-related injury, prepare to do the following:
Report the injury to your employer.
Notify your employer in writing and keep a copy for your own records.
Complete a claims form.
Otherwise, your employer is under no obligation to provide compensation benefits.
File your claim as soon as possible.
The earlier you file your claim, the earlier you may begin to receive benefits.
Trouble can arise at any step in the process of filing a claim and receiving compensation benefits.

The Texas statute of limitations only allows injured workers to file a claim within a period of one year after discovery of the injury—even if you are not certain that you have a case, contact Daspit Law Firm.
