Workplace Injury

If you were injured at work, you must be suffering more than physical pain. You should probably be suffering from an inability to work, loss of wages is very likely, suffering from inadequate compensation as well.

The most common causes of workplace injury are:

  • Accidents
  • Hearing loss
  • Psychological conditions
  • Disablement
  • Occupational diseases

Workplace injury cases are increasingly common. If you are in a workplace injury, know that the first thing you need to do is seek first aid. It is essential to ask your doctor what types of treatments you will still need to do during the consultation. It is necessary to ask because you may be entitled to some benefits from your health plan.

You will need to report your workplace injury to your employer (if you have not already done so) and also for the WSIB. As soon as possible, you must say as the deadline for claiming your benefits is up to 6 months from the injury date.

Depending on your case, you may receive a recovery treatment plan, a return to work plan, as well as a workplace protection plan.

If your workplace claim has been denied by WSIB Ontario or your employer does not want to comply, you can appeal the case with one of our lawyers’ help. We will be happy to help you find your rights.
