An injury on the job can stymy your ability to provide for your family. Workers’ compensation can protect you while you recover, but only if you qualify for aid. Some of the most common injuries include overexerting your body, slips and falls, being struck by or against another object, heavy equipment accidents, and repetitive motion injuries.
Sometimes the demands of work overtax our bodies. Shoulder injuries and lower back injuries are very common when we try to lift heavy objects. If you have overexerted your body on the job, you likely qualify for workers’ compensation.
Workplaces can have hazardous conditions that cause us to trip, slip, and fall. Uneven surfaces, ice and water, oily walkways, and stumbling blocks can all cause us to fall and sustain an injury. Most commonly these types of accidents injure our lower bodies, and can inhibit our ability to perform our jobs.
Modern machinery is very advanced, but not always safe. Cranes and other heavy equipment are very powerful, but the potential energy stored in the objects they move can cause serious personal injury and even fatalities. No matter your injury, you need to seek legal counsel to ensure you are awarded workers’ compensation.
