Is my wife who suffered an injury during the course of her work liable to be compensated for such injury?
My wife works for one of the world’s largest potato chips manufacturer in the world. She works in the department where they have to physically transfer boiling hot potato to the machine that peals of the skin before it’s sliced up into pieces. The machinery that is used in the plant was established in the early 80s and has never been changed. Last week while doing her routine job of transferring the hot potatoes, the hot water pipe broke causing severe burns on her body. What do we do in this situation?11/09/2016 | Category: Employment » Workers Comp... | State: ALL | #26477
In order to get the benefit of worker compensation benefit, the employee must prove the following:
- The employer for whom you work for must legally be implementing the worker’s compensation benefit or must be legally required to do so, if they haven’t.
- There exists an employee-employer relationship.
- The injury or illness that was suffered must have occurred during the course of employment.
