Certain workplaces, such as a construction site, a railroad yard, or a commercial dock, involve heavy machinery that pose a risk of significant injury. Yet even in an ordinary office or consumer-oriented environment, injuries can happen.
Common types of workers' compensation cases
The following are a few examples of how workers' compensation cases originate:
- A restaurant worker gets a burn injury.
- A housepainter falls from scaffolding.
- A building's entryway accumulates moisture from people tracking in snow, leading to a worker who slips and falls.
- Heavy items fall from a shelf onto a worker seated below.
The state of Maine has laws that require your employer or your employer's insurance to compensate you or your family if you are injured while at work. You may be entitled to receive full or partial pay, reimbursement for medical expenses, or payments for a disability resulting from a work-related injury.
By compensating an employee who is injured on the job, workers' compensation can be a bridge of financial support until that person is able to return to the workforce.
