Workplace accidents happen all the time. If you have been hurt on the job, contact a workers compensation attorney to get the compensation that you deserve. In this video, you will learn about the most common types of accidents.
One of the most common accidents is slip and fall. This can occur due to many reasons. The floor may be slippery or there may not be proper lighting. These slips and falls may result in broken bones, concussions, or even spinal injuries. If your employer was negligent, you are likely entitled to compensation.
Another common accident is when you are hit by an object and injured. Something may fall on your head or something may swing and hit you in the side. This can cause fractures, concussions, eye injuries, and more. To prevent this, signs should be posted, objects should be well secured, and hardhats should be worn.
Struck against injuries are similar. They involve someone pushing you into something that injures you. For example, someone may attempt to get by you in a tight space and end up bumping you into a wall. Such accidents can also lead to injuries which would be covered by workers compensation.
