The Most Common Workplace Accidents
Every worker deserves a safe working environment, but unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Some industries are more dangerous than others, for example, construction. In this industry, injuries can occur because of falls from heights, falling objects, explosions, electrocutions, and building collapses.
Other dangerous industries include agriculture, transportation, utilities, manufacturing, education, and health. The most dangerous industries, though, are that where large equipment is used, such as in the oil and gas industries. But any workplace can be dangerous and lead to injury due to things such as slips, trips, falls, transportation accidents, fires, and equipment and machinery accidents.
Regardless of the type of injury, the consequences can be severe and long-lasting, meaning that you may be out of work, with lost wages and lots of medical bills, for the foreseeable future.
The Most Common Types of Workplace Injuries
The damages we may obtain for you will depend on your specific injuries. Some of the most common types of workplace injuries we see are traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, loss of limb or amputation injuries, back and neck injuries, soft tissue injuries, repetitive stress injuries, bone fracture injuries, internal injuries, crush injuries, electrocution injuries, and burn injuries.
What Might I Be Entitled To?
