Do I Have a Work Injury Case?

You may have a workers’ compensation claim if you were hurt at work or experience medical issues related to your work activities (such as a repetitive strain injury, chronic pain, or health problems stemming from chemical or noise exposure). If your loved one died because of a work injury or illness, you might be eligible to file a claim for survivors’ benefits.

Speak with a workers’ comp lawyer to discuss your possible claim after a work injury.

How Long Do I Have to File a Work Injury Case in Ontario?

Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board states that workers have six months from the date of the injury or date of diagnosis to claim benefits. If your claim is denied, you must submit a notice of your intent to appeal within 30 days regarding a return-to-work decision or within six months to appeal another decision.

The WSIB recommends you report your injury right away, even if you aren’t sure workers’ comp covers you. Don’t let your manager pressure you into taking time off work to recover when you could be eligible for benefits — contact a work injury lawyer for help with your claim.

What Is Compensated in an Ontario Work Injury Claim?

Workers’ comp benefits cover many injury-related losses in Ontario, such as:

  • Income replacement and loss of retirement income
  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Disability expenses
  • Non-economic loss awards for permanent impairments, including disfigurement
  • Survivor benefits including funeral expenses and bereavement counseling

Ontario Work Injury Laws

The workers’ compensation system functions as a no-fault insurance system. This means that generally, you can’t sue your employer for a work injury in Ontario. Workers’ compensation is typically the only option for employees to pursue compensation for job-related injuries or illnesses.

In addition, not all workers are covered under workers’ comp. Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Act lists two schedules of workers who are automatically covered in industries such as construction, manufacturing, mining, and retail trades. Employers outside these schedules can apply for coverage, but some workers, such as independent contractors, are not covered.

Contact a work injury lawyer to discuss your eligibility under workers’ comp.

Factors Affecting Work Injury Benefits

No two workers’ compensation claims are alike, and the benefits you receive can vary based on several factors. The compensation awarded by workers’ comp can be affected by:
