Help In All Types Of Work Injury Claims

Whether they are catastrophic or due to repetitive stress, workplace injuries can cause long-term pain, disability or wrongful death. Exposure to toxins and hazardous materials in the workplace can result in occupational diseases such as cancer. Additional types of on-the-job injuries and illnesses include:

Back and neck pain: This could be something that develops over time, or it may be the result of accidents that cause severe on-the job neck injuries or back injuries.

Limb injuries: This includes injuries to legs, feet, arms and hands. In the most serious cases, these injuries may result in amputation.

Blindness and deafness: This includes loss of sight or hearing due to workplace chemical exposure, explosions or other injuries.

Repetitive stress injuries: These are injuries that are caused by repeating the same movements over and over in the workplace. Carpal tunnel is one of the most common.

Electric shock and burns: These can range from chemical burns to electrocution.

An injury or illness caused by work conditions can happen to any employee. However, certain workplaces pose increased risk for workers, such as construction and industrial sites, warehouses, factories, restaurants and offices.

Some injuries are caused by a negligent third party. For example, if defective equipment caused your injury, we can often hold the manufacturer liable. We will look for third-party negligence and seek additional damages when applicable.
