Accidents And Injuries Associated With Specific Industries

Virtually any type of accident can occur at any workplace, but these are some of the more common types of accident cases we see:

  • Construction industry: Falls from scaffolding, machinery accidents, electric shocks, falling objects, slip-and-falls, exposure to hazardous materials
  • Factory and manufacturing industry: Repetitive stress injuries, machinery accidents, injuries caused by falling objects, injuries caused by awkward body movements required in this line of work
  • Transportation industry: Truckers and commercial drivers are prone to suffering neck and back injuries. If the driver has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, any number of serious injuries can result.
  • Desk/computer workers: Repetitive stress injuries are especially common for individuals who are required to work on computers. This includes carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome.
  • Medical workers: Including nurses, nursing home workers, home health workers and other medical workers are often required to do heavy lifting — in addition to other risks associated with these jobs.
