Common Injuries Resulting in Workers Compensation Claims

Workers Compensation Injuries

When you think about your workplace there are many possible thoughts that could pop into your head. You might think of a place you love going to or a place you can’t wait to leave. A place where your day is filled with challenging and rewarding work or monotonous and boring tasks. Regardless, you definitely think of it as a source of income for you and your family. Have you ever thought of it as a danger zone or an accident waiting to happen? If you have contracted an illness or suffered an injury at your workplace your thoughts may turn to what you are going to do next.

Common Injuries Leading to Workers Compensation Claims

You don’t need to work at a large construction site to be at risk for suffering a workplace accident. A luxurious office in a high-rise building could be loaded with risks. A wobbly stair, broken chair or wet floor can all be cause for a workplace injury. Some common workplace injuries include:

  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Sprained ankle
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Electric shock
  • Back muscle strain
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Head injury
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Ulcers

Workers compensation laws, which are state laws, are in place to make available benefits to injured employees so they can continue to pay their bills and feed their families. Your employer has made insurance payments just in case an accident in the workplace does occur. The money is available; you just need to go through the process to receive it.

Retaining A Workers Compensation Attorney

A skilled Cincinnati workers compensation attorney is well versed in the state laws that govern workers compensation and can help you to file your claim efficiently, accurately and promptly. Because the attorney has experience filing workers compensation claims, he can easily work with court personnel and the insurance companies to prevent any obstacles to your claim being settled. Accidents do happen but don’t make the mistake of not retaining a qualified workers compensation attorney to represent you.
