WHAT DETERMINES A WORK-RELATED INJURY?

It may sound simple, but one of the most important aspects of applying for workers’ compensation benefits is to determine that the accident happened on the job and that is should be considered a work-related injury. In many cases, this is obvious and it is clear that an accident happened at work. In others, insurance adjusters and employers may have doubts.
