What types of injuries or illnesses are covered under workers’ compensation? 

 In Utah, workers’ compensation generally covers any injury or illness that arises out of and in the course of employment. This can include injuries or illnesses that occur suddenly, as well as those that develop over time due to repetitive motions or exposure to harmful substances. 

Some common types of injuries and illnesses that are covered under workers’ compensation include: 

• Back injuries and strains 

• Slip and fall injuries 

• Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome 

• Occupational diseases, such as mesothelioma or hearing loss 

• Traumatic brain injuries 

• Burns and other types of workplace accidents 

• Respiratory illnesses related to exposure to toxic substances 

• Injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident while on the job 

• Stress-related injuries, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression 

It is important to note that not all injuries or illnesses that occur in the workplace are covered under workers’ compensation. If you have questions about whether your injury or illness is covered under workers’ compensation, it is recommended to consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
