When you sustain a workplace injury, or develop a work-related illness, you may not expect that to morph into further health issues. In numerous cases, the original injury or illness is just the tip of the iceberg, as the side-effects and complications which may arise can result in an equally severe, or worse, additional injury. For example, you may develop complications after a routine procedure to remedy a back injury, leaving you even less able to work than you were before going into surgery. Should this happen to you, you should be aware that you are also entitled to claim workers’ compensation and disability benefits for this secondary illness or injury, which is known as a compensable consequence injury.
As you may imagine, this matter can become convoluted as your employer and their insurer fight to protect their own bottom line through denying that you are eligible to claim compensation for a compensable injury.
