4 most common types of workplace injuries

When a person suffers an injury as a result of another’s negligence, immediate action is necessary. The state of Texas has a statute of limitation of two years on personal injury cases.

While personal injury cases can come about as a result of car accidents and dog bites, many occur every year at people’s places of work. People should be mindful to avoid the following workplace accidents, but they need to consult with an attorney should an incident happen.

1. Repetitive motion injuries

Not all injuries occur in a single accident. After weeks or months of performing the same action, people can incur various musculoskeletal problems. The motions do not even have to be related to manual labor. People who use a computer can experience carpal tunnel syndrome and vision problems as a result of excessively using an electronic device.

2. Tripping and slipping

Workplaces need to take immediate action in the event something gets spilled. However, it does not necessarily have to be a liquid. People can trip due to a patch of carpet coming loose or coworkers leaving their tools somewhere they should not.

3. Violent acts

All kinds of businesses are susceptible to robberies and other criminal acts. However, violence can also occur as a result of a disgruntled employee. Companies where violence is a potential concern need to take appropriate security measures to apprehend unbridled people before something terrible happens.

4. Overexertion

Overexertion can be related to many different types of physical acts. Some of the most common include:

  • Throwing
  • Carrying
  • Holding
  • Pushing
  • Lifting
  • Pulling

Employees need proper training on the way to handle certain tasks from their employers. Additionally, employers should provide essential equipment, such as forklifts and dollies.

Workplace injuries can range in severity from minor wounds to permanent disabilities. To attempt to recover damages, injured parties should consult with a personal injury attorney to review options.
