Accident du travail. I just had a “work-related accident” according to the doctor after I explained how I injured my back. I initially thought that she was kidding.
It’s not like I lost my fingers in the photocopier or better still, had the top layer of the skin from my face dissolve from the radiation emitted from the computer screen.
That’s what I would define a “work-related accident”. However, over here, it seems that all injuries at the place of work are considered work-related accidents. Even injuries incurred on the way to work are considered work-related accidents.
Either way, here I am, unable to move with a nice long form to fill out, as well as 4 copies to be distributed to Tom, Dick and Harry.
