A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY & GENERAL PRACTICE LAW FIRM

Work-Related Injuries

Many can relate to the prevalence of work-related injuries and the potential need for a work related injuries lawyer when considering an industrial factory and other jobs with high risk. Possibly never considered though are the work-related injuries possible (and prevalent) in office settings. Unfortunately, work related injuries are commonplace in office settings too. An individual seated comfortably in an office chair, talking on the phone or working on a computer, it’s hard to imagine how anyone could become injured, but it can certainly happen. Below are three prevalent causes of work-related injuries.

1. Office Setting

Individuals working in an office setting will regularly use a chair, desk, computer, and phone. Since many hours on any given day will be seated, it is crucial that all the equipment is fitted to limit strain on the body. Frequent work-related injuries result from daily tasks done repetitively or strain from the incorrect alignment of equipment. Injuries resulting from poor ergonomics include musculoskeletal disorders – or those impacting the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.

2. Industrial/Warehouses

Many sources list falls as the primary cause of work-related injuries, and thus the potential need for a personal injury attorney. Falls result from a variety of causes. Tripping over obstacles within a warehouse – which may include working from dangerous heights, loose wires, or unstable flooring. Also causing falls are slips from wet flooring or standing on something unstable. Injuries resulting from falls are varied but may include, bruising, concussion, sprains, breaks, and other lacerations.

3. Construction Sites

Air quality is cited as a primary concern for construction or demolition sites. Poor air quality is known to agitate or lead to asthma, allergies, and other respiratory disorders. There are numerous reasons for poor air quality in a construction environment some of which includes, overcrowding, poor ventilation, exposure to chemicals or asbestos, mold, etc.
