Types of Workplace Injuries
Of course, certain professions are more likely to produce certain injuries. For example, chemical burns, electrocutions, injuries caused by defective machinery, and more, are all more likely to occur on construction sites. That being said, various injuries can occur in any work environment, including the following:

- Repetitive strain injuries
- Hearing loss
- Slip or trip and fall injuries
- Muscle strains
Workers’ Compensation Vs. Third-Party Claims
If you are injured on the job, in most cases, you will seek workers’ compensation benefits. Essentially, when we file a workers’ compensation claim, we are seeking to obtain compensation from your employer’s insurance company to help cover the cost of your medical bills, a portion of your lost wages, and more. That being said, at times, workers’ compensation benefits will not cover the cost of a work-related injury. In this case, our firm can file a third-party claim. This is a personal injury claim filed against a liable third party that is not your employer, such as an equipment manufacturer, a property owner, or otherwise.
