Common Types of Workplace Accident Cases We Handle

According to the National Safety Council, the top three causes of work-related injuries and illnesses are:

  1. Exposure to harmful substances or environments – Workers can be injured by exposure to electricity, radiation, noise, or harmful substances.
  2. Overexertion and bodily reaction – These include non-impact injuries and those involving repetitive motion. Non-impact injuries stem from lifting, pushing, holding, and carrying. Repetitive motion injuries may result from “microtasks” stressing or straining a body part over time, such as heavy lifting, typing, or performing awkward hand motions over and over.
  3. Slips, trips, and falls – Parties who do not keep their premises and projects in good repair and free from debris put workers at risk of slips, trips, and falls. Construction workers, in particular, are at risk of falling from a height, such as a roof, lift, scaffold, or ladder.

These three causes collectively account for 75% of nonfatal injuries and illnesses.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our experienced attorneys handle all types of personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. If you got hurt at work, we are here to help you seek the financial security you deserve during this difficult time.
