Workplace injuries can occur for a variety of reasons and can have far-reaching consequences in a worker’s life.
Here are some of the most common types of workplace injuries, as well as how a lawyer can assist employees who have been injured.
1) Repetitive Stress Injuries: Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, can occur as a result of repeatedly performing the same task. These injuries can happen in a variety of workplaces, including offices, factories, and warehouses.
A lawyer can assist employees who have been diagnosed with a repetitive stress injury by negotiating a fair settlement with their employer and/or insurance company.
2) Back Injuries: Workplace activities such as heavy lifting, repetitive motions, slips, trips, and falls can all cause back injuries. A lawyer can assist workers who have suffered a back injury by negotiating a fair settlement with their employer and the insurance company.
