I got hurt while on the job today. What types of work related injuries are covered?

In general, the types of work related injuries that are covered if you are injured at work (and this depends on whether or not your employer offers workers’ compensation) are repetitive stress injuries, back, neck, head, shoulder, and knee injury. Further to that, any type of industrial disease or physical harm, covered by workers’ compensation, is covered if it is work related.
