Not many people in New York go to their jobs everyday thinking about the possibility that they might suffer a workplace injury. They go thinking that the day will be the same as any other.
Unfortunately, despite the many precautions that most workers take, workplace injuries do occur. And, there are many different types of injuries that can happen.
For some, a workplace injury may actually result from the cumulative impact of repeated, stressful activity. In many cases, the injury in these situations will be neck or back pain. Such injuries can leave workers facing a daily painful reminder that they may have been put in an awkward and dangerous position by their employers.
For others, sudden occurrences on the job can result in an injury. Suffering from a burn or electronic shock is not uncommon. When workers in New York suffer these injuries, they may require hospitalization to appropriately treat the injury. This may mean that the injured workers have to miss time from work, leaving them unable to earn an income.
