What is a Workplace Injury?
A workplace injury results from a hazardous condition or accident suffered by an employee while performing their job duties. In addition, workplace injuries include any injury sustained in the workplace, even if that activity was unrelated to the employee’s job duties.
Further, workplace injuries also include accidents that occur while an employee is commuting to work or home, as well as injuries that occur on a lunch break or outside of the workplace.
Given the broad scope of what constitutes a workplace injury, Workplace Accidents are a leading cause of bodily injury in New York City.
