Another common personal injury case that we deal with is workplace injuries. Unfortunately, many people get injured on the job for many different reasons where their employer is negligent and liable for their employee’s damages. Below are 3 of the common workplace injuries that we see come through our 1LAW offices.
- Fatigue due to overexertion. When people are overworked and overloaded with work, they break down over time. This causes sloppy mistakes and in the worst-case scenario, catastrophic injuries. When you’re working with heavy machinery and driving large vehicles, inattention due to overexertion could be life threatening.
- Getting hit by equipment. This is another common workplace injury. Sometimes things are not secured properly, furniture falls over or things just move and fall. If you’ve been hit by something on the job, you should speak to a lawyer immediately.
- Repetitive motion. Ranging from someone who works in a machine shop to someone who sits in a cubicle and types all day, they all require the same repetitive motions day in and day out. Unfortunately these motions cause wear and tear on your body. Carpal tunnel syndrome is an example of a repetitive motion injury.
Regardless of if you’ve been in a workplace injury or are just doing your research, a personal injury expert is your best bet to get your questions answered and your issues supported.
