Wondering About Your Workplace Injury?
No matter where you work or what type of work you do, on-the-job injuries are possible. From dangerous industries such as construction to jobs that take place in offices, workers can suffer injuries that may prevent them from returning to their jobs. Because of this, you should take all work injuries seriously, report them right away and get medical care.
Traumatic or one-time injuries happen because of accidents such as falls, explosions, equipment accidents and more. These are the types of incidents and injuries most people think of when they hear about workers’ compensation. However, they are not the only way people get injured on the job.
Repetitive Injuries/Cumulative trauma results from a medical problem which occurs gradually as a result of work activities. This includes repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder impingement and joint injuries. These types of injuries also sideline workers and can last for months or years.
What Are Some Of The Most Common Work Injury Claims?
Here are just some examples of frequent types of workplace accidents and injuries:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Neck, shoulder and back injuries
- Toxic exposure leading to long-term illness
- Inhalation of dangerous chemicals or dust leading to COPD or similar conditions
- Being hit by falling objects
- Knee, ankle or foot injuries
- Work-related car or truck accidents
- Construction accidents and injuries
- Workplace assaults
