Workplace Accidents & Injuries
Worker’s compensation was set in place as a system of compensating work-related injuries without employees suing their place of work. Whether you work in an office or on a construction site, you are covered by worker’s compensation. These laws exist to provide you, the employee, with the financial means to cover any medical bills or lost wages that come as a result of a work injury. Common hazards that may lead to an injury or illness in the workplace include:
- Falling objects
- Equipment malfunction
- Toxic exposure
These hazards can lead to severe injuries and infections that can force you to miss work. Many people do not believe that they are eligible for worker’s compensation, but over 98% of Madison’s workforce is. The Worker’s Compensation Act also covers both part time and full-time employees in most cases and is also available to employees of the private and public sector.
Disability payments can be accessed for both partial and total disability. If your work-related injury becomes fatal, death benefits are also available for your family. Some workplace injuries may include:

- Back injury
- Shoulder injury
