Many people see their workplace as a "second home" of sorts because they spend so much time in the office. With a so many hours spent in a single location, however, there comes an increased likelihood of injury. This is especially true if the employee in question has been working long hours and on strenuous tasks, although it applies in situations that are best described as "routine office work" as well. In fact, injuries inflicted by the latter repetitive injuries that can make using your hands incredibly painful can be particularly difficult to heal. If you have been injured while working, it's important to understand your options when it comes to obtaining compensation for your pain and expenses.
One of the first things that comes to mind when a worker is injured in their workplace is a workers' compensation claim. That's what the insurance exists for, after all, right? Unfortunately, not every employer carries workers' compensation insurance. It is a crime for an employer not to carry worker's compensation insurance but still, some don't.
