Common Workplace Injuries Force Thousands to File for Workers’ Compensation
If you get hurt at work, you already know you will have your medical treatment covered by Workers’ Compensation. It’s important to know, however, that many injuries are common in the workplace. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking precautions against accidents and injuries during the workday. Technology and invention bring various occupations new, faster and better equipment all the time. However, new isn’t always safe. If you got hurt at work, talk to a Workers’ Compensation personal injury lawyer who stays up-to-date with these laws and who will know exactly how to proceed with your case.
Construction Jobs: Operating construction tools, machinery and vehicles is inherently dangerous work. Forklifts and other vehicles malfunction and tip over; spills cause slip and fall accidents; faulty ladders and scaffolding, or poorly maintained equipment, can cause devastating falls; factory equipment malfunctions and cuts and limb amputations are common; working with electrical wires and equipment can cause burns; and accidents injure workers on jobs that involve driving on roadways all the time.
Office Jobs: Falls and slips cause broken bones and painful sprains; repetitive stress motions, such as typing on the computer, lead to incredibly painful conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome; sitting all day causes back pain and circulatory issues; heavy lifting, pushing and pulling cause shoulder, neck and back injuries.
Police Work: Some injuries are rather obvious. They include: getting shot or otherwise injured while trying to arrest suspects and car accidents during chases or even in the normal course of the workday.
Healthcare Professionals: Medical facilities are dangerous places to work. In addition to exposure to disease, doctors, nurses and other healthcare facility employees come in contact with many people and situations that can cause severe injury. Heavy lifting, slips and falls, needle sticks and patient violence are all threats to healthcare workers.
