In many industries, such as construction, manufacturing, nursing and trucking, workers put their bodies on the line. These jobs are physically demanding and often dangerous. Training and safety equipment prevent many work-related injuries but cannot stop them all from happening.
Virtually any part of your body can suffer an injury, either from an on-the-job accident or after years of labor. But some types of work injuries are more common than others. Here are five of the most common types of work-related injuries.
Injuries from these workplace accidents can be severe and force you out of work for weeks, months, or even years. During that time, workers’ compensation can help you pay your bills and make up for your lost income. Qualifying can be complicated, but if you have been turned down for workers’ comp, an attorney who practices in this area of the law can be very helpful.
