Will Workers' Comp Pay For Non-Accidental
Work Injuries in Rhode Island?
I was injured at work but it wasn’t an accident- will workers’ comp cover it?
Workers’ Comp can cover non-accidental work injuries.
Injuries Don't Need to be an Accident
Injuries Build Up Over Time
We typically see these types of cases when an employee must come out of the workforce due to repetitive work activities that, over time, become disabling them to the point that they are no longer able to work full duty. As long as we can show that this disability is the result of an occupational illness or disease, or by repetitive work activity that cumulatively, over time, resulted in the inability to work, then there would be a workers’ compensation case.
