OCCUPATIONAL INJURY OR DISEASE UNDER WISCONSIN WORKER’S COMPENSATION LAW Workers often sustain an injury or contract a disease arising out of their employment for which the employer and worker’s compensation insurer deny worker’s compensation benefits, on the grounds that the worker cannot identify a specific traumatic event that caused or precipitated the injury or disease.  Such a denial may be contrary to fact and law.  It is not always necessary for the worker to be able to identify a specific event or date of injury, in order for the claim to be compensable.  The purpose of this essay is to explain the concept of  “occupational injury or disease,” for which worker’s compensation benefits may indeed be awarded.

Under such circumstances the commission or the court can base its findings upon a preponderance of probabilities or of the inference that may be drawn from established facts."
