On many occasions, accidents at work occur as a consequence of an action on the part of the worker. According to the law, an accident at work is any bodily injury that the worker suffers on the occasion of or as a consequence of the work that he/she performs as an employee. In any accident at work, two essential requirements must be met:
- The worker has suffered a bodily injury. Injury is understood to mean: a wound, blow or illness. It also includes after-effects or mental illness.
- The accident is caused by or as a consequence of the professional activity.
