Communication Workers

Who is a communications worker?

Any person who works in the communication industry including technicians, linemen, mechanics, call center representatives and administrators.

What are some common compensable injuries for communications workers?

Slips, trips, and falls that occur while you are working can be compensable injuries. Many of these accidents also occur in company vehicles traveling to and from job sites and garages. One of the most common injuries we hear about result from lifting work ladders. In addition, many other injuries which result from activities repeated over time are also considered compensable; these include tasks at work that require repetitive use of the hands or arms resulting in carpal tunnel syndrome, lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, and shoulder impingement. These conditions can be caused by typing, stripping wire and repetitive use of hammers and drills.

What should I do if I am injured?

First put your employer on notice that you are injured. Never give a recorded statement to an insurance company it could be used against you in the future. Then call an attorney you can trust, who has experience and who will help you with your claim from filing through appeal, if needed. For workers' compensation cases no fee should ever be collected until you are compensated for your injury.

Do I have a claim?

The best answer to this question is to consult an attorney as soon as possible. There is no fee for a consultation and the law in this area is confusing and nuanced. Do not rely on your employer to tell you that you have a claim and filing a claim with your employer is not the same as filing with the workers' compensation commission. Unfortunately, not all injuries are covered, but you may have an occupational disease or hernia that is a result from doing your job repeatedly over a long period of time.

What are the benefits of filing a claim?

  • Full payment for medical treatment from the doctor of your choice for life
  • Weekly pay while you are unable to work
  • Compensation for permanent disability, even if minimal and you can return to your job
  • Vocational rehabilitation benefits if you cannot return to your job due to disability
  • Reimbursement for prescriptions and necessary medical equipment
  • Reimbursement for mileage, parking for doctor visits, therapy and tests
