Almost any kind of injury caused while working can be claimed. An injury or condition that existed prior to your employment cannot be claimed unless it has been substantially aggravated or worsened while performing work-related activities.

Common injuries include burns, cuts, head trauma, asbestos exposure, eye injuries, knee injuries, back injuries, exposure to harmful substances, work-induced heart attack, carpal tunnel syndrome or other injuries related to repetitive trauma, disfigurement, and other problems.
