A Closer Look at Break or Lunch Time Injuries and Your Right to Worker's Compensation
While it's generally pretty easy to identify work-related injuries that happen directly on the job, it's harder to figure out what injuries may be compensated for during break times and lunch times. In order to receive worker's compensation you'll need to prove that your illness or injury is work-related and that you meet other requirements for eligibility.
Lunch time and break time injuries can fall into a gray area and this is when it is so necessary to contact a lawyer for help. Depending on the injury and where it occurred, you could be eligible for compensation or you may not be. It all really depends on the circumstances.
