While police may not be happy about being recorded, it’s your right to do so. Unsurprisingly, some people have reported police trying to delete videos from their phones or destroying the phones altogether.

Can I Get Worker’s Compensation For a Hernia?

Hernia

A hernia is an injury that occurs when an organ or fatty tissue is pushed through a weak spot or a tear in surrounding muscle tissue. There are several common types of hernias: inguinal (inner groin), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach).

A hernia can occur when tissue weakness combines with pressure to push an organ through a tear or opening in the tissue. Hernias often occur after heavy lifting, persistent coughing or sneezing, diarrhea or constipation, or a fall. Obesity, poor nutrition, and smoking can also increase the risk of hernias.

Eligible for Workers’ Compensation

To be eligible for workers’ compensation, you must be able to show that your hernia is a work-related injury, meaning it was caused by an accident while doing your regular work
