Common Types of Workplace Accidents

Because there are countless different jobs, industries, and work environments in the U.S., there are also countless different types of accidents that can cause injuries. According to the North Carolina Department of Labor, a 2014 study revealed that the most common types of workplace accidents causing fatal injuries in North Carolina were falls from elevations, being caught in or between objects, and being struck by objects. Though construction workers are more likely to be injured than others, any worker can slip and fall, be struck in the head by a falling or flying object, and more.

Accidents that can occur in the workplace include:

Injuries can be minor, such as cuts and abrasions, sprains and fractures, and broken bones, as well as more serious, like burns, amputations, spinal cord and neck injuries, and head and brain trauma. It’s important to know that accidents can occur not just on construction sites, but in typical offices as well. Even office managers have an obligation to ensure their environment is safe for employees.

What is an Electrocution Accident?

A type of accident that can seriously injure and impact a worker regardless of what industry they’re in is an electrocution accident. These accidents occur when workers are exposed to a high voltage electrical source and injuries can include burns, paralysis, death, muscle pain and contractions, cardiovascular issues, and more.

Some accidents can occur due to a downed power line, faulty wiring, and defective and dangerous products. Employers are required to provide a safe workplace for their employees and can be held liable for any costs incurred due to injuries.

Why Hire an Attorney?

There are many reasons why injured workers should hire an attorney to help them file their workers’ compensation claims. If you’ve already had your claim denied, our attorneys can assure you that this doesn’t mean you’re out of options. We can conduct a thorough investigation and collect the evidence we need to appeal your denial and secure your deserved benefits.

One of the most common misconceptions that people have is that they don’t need an attorney to recover compensation because their employers and insurance companies are looking out for their best interests. This isn’t true – insurance companies are for-profit businesses that place their own interests first and have been known to act in bad faith when it comes to assessing claims. Our attorneys can defend your rights and make sure you’re not being undermined or taken advantage of.

Through our devotion to you and your future, we can recover damages like medical bills, which can cover the costs of physical therapy, surgery, hospital stays, and more, and lost wages or future earning capacity.
