“A” is not just a letter but a word, in worker’s compensation cases, it is a REALLY important word. I’ll explain …..
In order to get worker’s comp benefits, you have to show that the work accident was “A” cause of your injury – not “THE” cause, the major cause, the most important cause, the predominant cause, or anything like that.
There is a world of difference between “A” cause and “THE” cause when it comes to making sure that people who get hurt on the job get the benefits they are entitled to after on the job injury because it means that in a world where people wake up every day with bad backs, creaky knees, and a host of other problems, they do not get put out on the scrap heap when they have an on-the-job injury.
When you get hurt on the job “A” cause is an important protection for you to help ensure that you are able to keep food on the table, to keep a roof over your head, and to get access to quality medical care.
