Types of Work-Related Injuries

Back and Neck Injuries

Back injuries happen in many different ways. The most common back injury to occur on the job usually comes as a result of lifting a heavy object improperly, but they can also occur over many years of labor. Both types may rise to the level of a workers’ compensation claim.

Hand Injuries

You rely on your hands to do your job. Whether your work consists of typing on a computer all day or handling hazardous materials carefully, injuries to your hands can cause you to lose your ability to do your job effectively. Injuries to hands include damage to both your fingers and wrists and commonly include broken bones or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Knee Injuries

Your knees are filled with sensitive and critical tendons and connections that link the top and bottom of your leg. They’re also a pivot point for your ability to walk, run, and move fluidly. Knee pain can be one of the toughest conditions to work through, and continuing to do so may require expensive and even more painful surgery to repair.

Hip Injuries

Hips are another pivotal movement joint. Over time, years of standing, crouching, walking, and more can wear out a hip, resulting in the need for costly replacement surgery and more to seek pain relief. Hips can also break from sudden impacts, such as falls, leading to a long and painful recovery and rehabilitation process.

Toxic Exposure

Nearly any job features some exposure to toxic chemicals, such as asbestos, ammonia, acids, heavy metals, pesticides, and more. While a single exposure to one of these substances may not be harmful in any way, repeated and constant exposure can develop into significant health problems over time.

If you have been injured at work, don’t wait! Inform your employer of your condition and then contact The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, P.C. to get started!
