Types Of Injuries That Occur At Work
Workplace injuries usually fall into one of two categories:
1. A sudden, traumatic event such as a motor vehicle accident, an accident involving tools or equipment, an explosion or a fall injury. Construction accidents typically fall under this category. Lifting injuries affecting health care workers and industrial workers are also sometimes sudden events. An injured worker is usually eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, temporary total disability and in most cases a monetary award.
2. An occupational disease occurring over time, including repetitive stress injuries. Workers whose work activities have taken place inside moldy buildings may become disabled as a result of “sick building syndrome.” Exposures to asbestos dust could cause asbestosis or other pulmonary diseases.
Both are types of workers’ compensation cases — those triggered by single-event injuries and those involving occupational diseases.

Let Us Worry About The Details
If you are injured in a work accident or other incident that is the result of someone else’s carelessness, you may encounter resistance from employers and insurance providers to fully reimburse you for medical expenses, lost wages and other costs.
