Our Shelby Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Are Ready To Help

Normally, when people think of work-related injuries, they think of something major and obvious, like a fall from a ladder at a construction site.

While these types of injuries do account for many workers’ compensation cases, there are a variety of injuries that could be considered work-related. Common types of work-related injuries are:

  • Injuries caused by a specific traumatic accident on the job
  • Injuries that developed over time, such as the repetitive stress injuries carpal tunnel and tendonitis
  • Disabling diseases caused by health hazards that an employer exposed workers to, such as asbestos

What Are Some Common Workplace Accidents?

Although the law requires employers to follow specific safety measures to protect workers, accidents still happen. In fact, there are several commonly reported types of workplace accidents:

  • Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
  • Falls to a lower level
  • Overexertion from lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being caught in or compressed by something, such as machinery
  • Equipment failure
  • Construction Site Accident
