Types Of Injuries That Occur At Work
Workplace injuries usually fall into one of two categories:
1. A sudden, traumatic event while working 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 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. Job duties can also cause stress on a worker's body over time, which develop into serious injuries that require medical treatment.
Both are types of workers’ compensation cases — those triggered by single-event injuries and those that develop over a period of time. Let's discuss your injuries and determine what type of claim your injuries fall under.
