Weitz & Luxenberg wants to help you seek compensation for your work-related accident
The law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg wants to correct a misconception among the American workforce. Many people think work-related accidents are a concern for heavy industry trades at factories, warehouses, construction sites, and other jobs where physical effort is required. The fact is a work injury can occur anywhere, and at any time, when the conditions are met for catastrophe. All it takes is one slip, trip, cut, or faulty piece of machinery, and you can find yourself seriously injured.
Information about workplace injuries
A total of 4,340 fatal work injuries were recorded in the United States in 2009, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report, “National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries in 2009.” They record a shocking 3,277,700 nonfatal incidences – one injury for every 45 people in the American workforce today.
Common causes of injury at work include, but are not limited to:
- Sprains, strains and tears
- Broken bones
- Blunt trauma
- Penetrating trauma
- Skin diseases or disorders
- Respiratory conditions
- Hearing loss
- Other illnesses
It is also important to know the kind of claim you wish to file. A claim is dependent upon the method in which you sustained the injury. Types of claims include:
- Factory based injuries
- Heavy machinery/equipment based injuries
- Office based injuries
- Work related driving based injuries
- Warehouse based injuries
- Retail based injuries
Injuries in the workplace can range anywhere from a bad fall in an office building due to negligent office maintenance, or broken bones resulting from a faulty forklift. The important thing to know is that those injured in the workplace can seek compensation for their losses.
