Common Work Related Injuries & On-The-Job Accidents

All too common, workers in certain occupations are exposed to serious injuries and fatalities. Workers in transportation and material moving, construction/extraction occupations, and building and grounds maintenance experience more injuries than in any other jobs. As an employee, you work hard for an honest dollar. But because of the very nature of your occupation or because of your employer’s disregard for your safety, you have been seriously injured. If your injuries cause you to be unable to work and earn an income, you have a right to receive medical care and untaxed disability wages.

According to the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety’s 2018 Workplace Safety Index, serious workplace injuries cost businesses more than $58 billion in 2018, a nearly 3 percent increase from the last year. Because of these losses to employers, they often strive to deny claims to reduce their insurance costs and liability. When you’ve been injured on the job, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim; yet, the process is complicated and deadlines for filing are strict. If you don’t fill out forms properly and file paperwork on time, your benefits could be permanently denied. Though workers’ compensation insurance companies know an employee being injured through no fault of their own while conducting work tasks is not uncommon, they may deny legitimate claims hoping you’ll give up and not follow through on obtaining the benefits to which you’re legally entitled.

With all you’re facing, workers’ compensation Attorney Brian W. Freeman understands what you’re going through. As a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer, Inc. client, you will receive skilled representation along with the respect, understanding, and support you deserve.

Wrongful Death in Workplace Accidents

According to an OSHA report, in a recent year there were 376 job related fatalities of California employees. If a loved one died and you’re searching to hold those responsible accountable, you may be entitled to compensation through workers’ compensation wrongful death benefits.

Leading Causes of Common Workplace Injuries

Overexertion is the number-one cause of workplace injury. Accidents related to physical exertion, including lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, bending, crawling, reaching, and kneeling, and even lifting light loads such as books and boxes of paper or stacks of files, can cause back, neck, and shoulder injuries.

The following issues are the other top causes of work injuries, according to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

  • Repetitive motions involving fine motor tasks, also called repetitive stress injuries causing temporary or permanent injuries to muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons

  • Same level falls or same-surface falls including falls on ramps, level surfaces, ramps, and stairs

  • Slip or trip without falls

  • Falls from heights

  • Strikes by or against objects or equipment caused by forcible contact or impact between an employee and an object or equipment that falls, swings, rolls, and flies

  • Caught in/compressed by equipment such as gears and rollers, causing crushing injuries

  • Occupational motor vehicle crashes

Less common but still tragically debilitating injuries and fatalities are on-the-job electrocutions, violence by a person or animal attack, and exposure to toxic substances, explosions, and fire. Transportation job accidents are the leading cause of California employee deaths.
