Who Gets Hurt in Most Workplace Accidents?
Some types of jobs are more dangerous than others. While it’s certainly possible to get injured in an office, it’s also understandable that a forklift driver is at a higher risk for more significant injury than a receptionist. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that, regardless of occupation, workers’ compensation numbers are rising.
Most workplace accidents injure workers in seven types of jobs, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The occupations include firefighters, police, truck drivers, and other transportation-related workers; those employed in healthcare positions; laborers; construction workers; and movers. In fact, while statistics reveal that 100 in every 10,000 U.S. workers gets hurt in a workplace accident each year, people employed in these seven fields are much more likely to get seriously injured in the workplace.
At Garber Law, P.C., we know that many good people, like you, go to work in hazardous conditions and face the potential for accidents and injuries daily. Workplace accidents, especially those on a construction site or in factories and warehouses, can result in catastrophic injuries.

Construction Sites Pose The Highest Risk For Workplace Injuries In New Jersey And Pennsylvania
When accidents happen on construction sites, the personal injuries suffered by workers can be devastating. Garber Law, P.C. represents workers on all worksites hurt or injured in any of the following incidents (and others):
- Falls from scaffolding, roofs, platforms, or ladders
- Construction debris
- Collapsing scaffolds or ladders
- Burns and other electrical accidents
- Toppling machines, including forklifts and other equipment that can tip over

Garber Law, P.C. Holds Third Parties Responsible For Workplace Injuries
While you are not permitted by law to sue your employer when you have been hurt in an accident at work, there is a good chance that you can hold someone responsible for your injuries. A third-party claim may exist if your accident was caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer. For example:
- Defective product: If you get injured by a product or piece of equipment that doesn’t perform the way it’s supposed to, we can hold the manufacturer or supplier responsible for that defect.
- Equipment collapse: If the company that erected the scaffolding you fell from did a poor job, we will sue them for poor workmanship.
- Safety hazards: Often, several subcontractors work on the same job together. If an employee of another company was negligent and you got hurt, that could mean a third-party claim.
In fact, many cases have third-party claims. Just because you cannot sue your employer doesn’t mean Joel Garber and his team won’t be able to help you hold someone responsible for the mistakes that caused your injuries.
This is a complicated area of the law; that’s why it’s important you talk with Joel Garber right away. He is an extremely knowledgeable and highly successful personal injury lawyer who has been working to protect people injured in workplace accidents for almost 30 years. He never backs down from insurance companies and he will fight for your rights if your employer or its insurance carrier denied any part of your claim.
