Office Injuries

When most people think about workplace injuries, construction accidents and industrial workplace accidents come to mind. Although these industries are certainly dangerous and can result in workplace accidents, even seemingly safe jobs can result in injury — such as office job injuries.

Injuries that commonly result from office jobs include:

  • Slip and fall accident injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Stress-related ailments
  • Occupational disease
  • Asbestos exposure
  • Mold exposure
  • Lead poisoning

Construction Site and Factory Workplace Injuries

Workplace injury cases in a construction site or industrial setting are often catastrophic. These jobs are inherently dangerous but can become especially hazardous because of employer negligence. As a victim of this negligence, you can recover damages through a workers’ compensation claim. If gross negligence (such as a safety violation) is the cause of your injuries, additional compensation may be available.

Naturally, construction sites and factories present hazardous conditions that can result in a range of workplace injuries, such as:

  • Exposure to toxic fumes
  • Electrocution
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Compressed gases and hazards
  • Crane accidents
  • Dangerous and defective machines
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Forklift accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Falling objects
  • Logging accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Loading accidents
  • Welding, cutting and brazing accidents
  • Debris accidents

Compensation for Workplace Injuries

Whether you or a loved one is suffering from a life-changing disabilityparalysis, or a minor injury or illness, you have the opportunity to get financial coverage for the damages. Even if the injury appears to be minor, you may still be able to recover damages.

You may be entitled to compensation to cover:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medications
  • Therapy (physical therapy, speech therapy, etc.)
  • Home health care
  • Anticipated future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and the loss of future earning capacity

In certain cases where your employer’s conduct is extreme, you may be awarded punitive damages to punish their wrongdoing and prevent future misconduct.
