The types and severity of injuries you can suffer at work depend on your job. It can be a disaster for a family, unable to anticipate the medical bills, loss of income during recovery, and pain and suffering caused by the accident. The rules and rights surrounding injuries and the actions that employees can take after an accident are often complicated.
As reported in an Insurance Journal article, the 10 leading causes of on-the-job injuries in a recent year were as follows:
Struck against object or equipment (2.9%)
Caught in or compressed by equipment or objects (3.5%)
Roadway incidents in motorized land vehicles (5.3%)
Falls to a lower level (8.6%)
Falls on the same level (15.4%)
Repetitive motions with micro-tasks (3.1%)
Slip or trip without falling (3.6%)
Other exertions and body reactions (7.2%)
Struck by equipment or an object (8.9%)
You may be qualified to receive financial compensation for your treatment, therapy, medical bills, lost wages and other loses.
