Who can claim?
If you suffer an on-the-job injury or illness at work (while performing work-related duties), regardless of fault, you may qualify for workers compensation benefits. In some cases, if you are not a permanent employee, but are working as a subcontractor, you may also be eligible for compensation. Workers compensation has changed in recent years, evolving to include a wider range of illnesses and injuries–including repetitive motion-related injuries caused by a continuous action. If you are unsure as to whether or not you can make a workers compensation claim, please contact John McGuire & Associates for a free consultation to advise on your situation
