Common Types of Workplace Injuries

Workplace accidents and injuries can stem from various situations, and being aware of potential risks is crucial.

Here are some common workplace injuries to be mindful of:

  • Repetitive Motion Injuries: These occur gradually over time and can damage nerves, often due to continuous, repetitive tasks.
  • Sprains and Strains: Overstretching ligaments can lead to painful sprains and strains, often caused by sudden movements or lifting heavy objects.
  • Burns: Workplace burns can result from exposure to hazardous chemicals, extreme heat, or electrical accidents, causing severe injuries.
  • Back Injuries: Heavy lifting, falling objects, or sudden movements can lead to back injuries, impacting an individual's mobility and quality of life.
  • Head Injuries: Slip and fall accidents, falling objects, or workplace violence can cause head injuries, which may have long-lasting consequences.

If you've experienced a workplace injury, seek professional guidance promptly to ensure you receive the necessary support to proceed with your case.

Employees injured at work have specific legal rights. If you're hurt on the job, you may be eligible to receive compensation and benefits. It's essential to understand and assert these rights.

Additionally, employees have responsibilities regarding workplace injuries. They must promptly inform their employer of harm suffered to facilitate the claims process.
