Wisconsin state law covers many injury types – mental and physical – that result from work accidents and occupational illnesses. This includes brain, neck, back or head injury and illnesses such as hearing loss or cancer caused by toxic chemical exposure.
If you work in an office or store, workers’ compensation is only applicable if the injury occurred at your place of employment. However, if your job requires traveling, you are covered at all times during travel. This includes time spent eating or sleeping, unless the employer’s insurance carrier has reason to believe that you injury resulted in activities that deviated from your regular work duties. In such a case, your Wisconsin workers’ compensation case may be denied.
