What Qualifies as a Work Injury?
A workplace injury includes any injury sustained during the scope of your work, even if you were not at your place of employment when the injury occurred. For instance, if you were traveling for work and were involved in a car or truck accident, this may qualify as a work injury.
Workplace accidents can happen for a number of different reasons, including:
- Unsafe or hazardous working conditions
- Lack of proper safety equipment
- Insufficient training for supervisors
- Improper supervision during work
- Lack of mandated warnings in hazardous areas
- Failure to follow safety codes
After a workplace accident leaves you injured, you may find yourself facing extensive injuries. This can lead to days, weeks, months, or even years of lost wages if you are unable to return to work. Even if you are capable of returning with a lighter workload, this can mean drastically reduced income or earning ability. The combination of financial hardship due to unanticipated medical expenses and reduced wages can leave you struggling to recover—physically, emotionally, and financially.

Employers and insurance companies can be notoriously difficult to deal with after a work injury, but Ms. Bell has years of experience aggressively negotiating for fair settlements on behalf of her clients.
