Common Workplace Injuries And Accidents
- Back injuries: We have handled many claims involving back injuries at work. Back injuries are common when someone falls, lifts heavy objects or performs a back-stretching motion repeatedly over time.
- Falls: Especially on construction sites and factories, falls are common accidents and often result in serious injuries.
- Repetitive stress injuries: Any physical action repeated often over a long time can result in significant injuries. Everyone from office workers to machine operators and factory workers can suffer these injuries. California is one of six states with a much more lenient standard for obtaining compensation for repetitive stress injuries than other states. Technical workers who do a lot of typing and other repetitive motions have a good chance of getting workers’ compensation benefits in California for repetitive stress injuries.
- Machinery-caused injuries: Accidents involving vehicles or other heavy machinery can result in limb loss, burns, paralysis and other catastrophic injuries.
These are just a few of the common accidents in the workplace. At Kiwan & Chambers, APC, we can help you through every step of the complex workers’ compensation process. If you have been hurt or someone you loved has died in a workplace accident, let us know. We can help you.
