When you’ve been injured on the job the onus is on you as the injured worker to prove that the injury is work-related. Before filing a claim, it is important that you answer a series of questions for yourself to determine the validity of the claim:
What happened? This will allow you to establish a broad view of the event that led to the injury and any surrounding occurrences.
Where did it happen? Obviously if the injury did not occur at work or as a result of work-related activities, you will not have success in getting your claim approved.
When did it happen? Just because the event that led to injury didn’t happen on company time doesn’t mean that it isn’t a work-related injury. Answers to the previous questions can help you to determine if a pain that you noticed over the weekend stems from something that happened at work.
How did it happen? What surrounding events may have caused the injury that you suffered? Can you determine the actual source of the injury or is a result of doing the same thing over and over for an extended period of time?
