In our many years of fighting for workers' rights, we have seen workplace injuries happen just about everywhere.
This includes a workplace you would associate as being relatively "safe".
A coffee shop.
Just a few days ago, we saw this article about a coffee shop employee who suffered severe head injuries when a high-pressure canister behind the counter exploded.
That sounds like an incredibly painful work-related injury, and one I'm sure the employee would never have anticipated. Take into account that in a coffee shop, burns can be fairly common as well.
It shows that injuries can, and do, happen anywhere. Just because you work in a profession where injuries don't seem common, it doesn't mean that you're ineligible for workers' compensation benefits.
