What is considered a work related injury?

A work-related injury is any injury that occurs in the course and scope of employment. The easy way to describe it is if you are doing something in the furtherance of the affairs of your employer's business, then you're engaged in the course and scope of employment. If your boss says, "Hey, why don't you go across the street and make a deposit at the bank?" and while you're walking across the street, you slip and fall, that's in the course and scope of employment. Anything that you're doing where you're furthering the affairs of your employer, you're not doing something for personal business but you're doing something for work business, that's in the course and scope of employment. If you get injured doing those things, you need to talk to a lawyer.
