Muscle and joint strains, sprains, and pulls are typically related to overexertion while performing your work duties. Though most of these injuries are considered minor to moderate, they may also be more severe, such as debilitating back injury involving a slipped or herniated disc. Overexertion can occur in any job that requires lifting but is most often seen in industries with heavy physical labor such as waiting tables, construction jobs, and manufacturing positions.
A slip and fall accident or fall from height can result in serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, concussion, severe head injury, neck injury, broken bones, back injury, or spinal cord damage. Falls that result in injury can happen on any type of surface, even if wearing adequate safety equipment. Injuries are likely when someone falls from any height, but generally falls from high levels such as ladders, roofs, cranes, buckets, and scaffoldings can cause devastating injuries. In some tragic cases, a worker may be killed due to a fall from a height, in which case the immediate family may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim.
Getting struck by a piece of equipment, falling object, dangerous projectile or tool being swung by another employee can have life-altering consequences, such as a traumatic brain injury, eye injury, head injury or broken bones.
Repetitive motion injuries are common in the workplace, due in large part to the use of computers and other electronics at work. Repetitive motion injuries can happen when the same physical motion is performed over and over again, such as typing or using a mouse. These injuries often take the form of tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and bursitis. Cases involving repetitive motion injuries are some of the more complicated workers’ compensation claims to prove, as it can take years to receive a diagnosis.
You can sustain serious lacerations, contusions and burns at work in many different ways, such as being struck by an object or when working with caustic chemicals or electrical equipment. These types of injuries can also vary in the degree of severity, although deep lacerations and burns account for the most severe forms of injuries, resulting in the need for skin grafting and nerve repair.
Common in construction accidents and manufacturing jobs, getting caught in heavy duty machinery or running equipment can have devastating consequences – including death. You may sustain broken bones, nerve damage, lost limbs, and face a long road toward recovery.
While your work-related injury is typically covered under workers’ compensation, sometimes a third party who doesn’t work for your company can be held liable for your injuries. Whether you were injured in a construction accident caused by subcontractor or you were hurt due to a defective product, remember that you have other ways of recovering compensation for your damages aside from a workers’ comp claim (e.g., personal injury lawsuit, product liability lawsuit, premises liability lawsuit).
