Types Of Injuries Commonly Suffered At Work
We confidently represent clients who have suffered injuries in all types of accidents, including:
- Back, neck and spinal cord injuries: Lifting heavy objects is known to cause neck and back injuries, but these can result from any type of accident at work. Herniated disks, paralysis, nerve damage, back strain, whiplash and numerous other neck and back-related injuries can impact the rest of your life, not just your ability to work.
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): Any object striking the head or the head striking an object, in even a minor incident, can cause serious head and brain injuries. A visible wound does not need to be present for the signs and symptoms of a TBI to indicate that something more serious is going on and should be evaluated by a doctor.
- Broken bones: Whether you were involved in a car accident in a work vehicle, an object fell on you or machinery malfunctioned, any situation can result in a broken or crushed bone. Broken bones often require surgery to reset the bone and can leave a worker unable to return to the job for weeks at a time.
- Repetitive stress injuries: Employees who work on computers all day or perform other repetitive tasks are prone to wear and tear on their joints, which can lead to repetitive stress injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common of these types of injuries, but numerous other situations can result from performing the same motions every day as part of your job.
We are not limited by this list of injuries. If you have suffered any type of injury at work, talk to an attorney at our firm to determine how to proceed with your case.
