Injuries at work or sports can be accidental, such as a slip or fall, or slowly over time with repetitive strain on an area of the body. If you are injured while at work, make a claim through your employer, and the Workers Compensation Board will cover your initial assessment fee and will decide if you are approved for further treatment. Be sure to make a claim through your employer within 5 days of becoming aware of your workplace injury. Workplace injuries are a common problem.
