Common Types of Work Accidents and Injuries

Work Injury Lawyer St. Lucie CountyA work injury attorney knows that there are some types of work-related injuries that occur more frequently than others. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, although we handle all kinds of work-related injuries and illnesses, there are certain conditions that we have seen time and time again representing clients in St. Lucie County.

Common Work Injuries

Across the United States, regardless of occupation, the most common work-related injuries are:

  • Chronic illness
  • Contusions
  • Cuts
  • Fractures
  • Inflammation
  • Punctures
  • Sprains
  • Strains

When a worker sustains these injuries, they may be unable to work while they recover. It can take anywhere from one to three months before the individual is well enough to come back to work. If complications arise, then that amount of time could be extended.

In some cases, a doctor may allow a worker to return to work on a part-time basis and/or on limited or light duty. Any of these types of restrictions can be discussed with your work injury lawyer in St. Lucie County to ensure that you are well enough to return to work.

Unfortunately, there are also injuries that can leave workers with long-term or permanent disabilities. In many of these cases, the individual is no able to return to their prior position, or they might not be able to work at all. Examples of these types of injuries include:

  • Amputations
  • Crushing
  • Dislocations
  • Electric shock
  • Multiple traumas

Common Work Accidents

Just as there are common work injuries that a St. Lucie County work injury lawyer frequently sees, there are also common types of accidents that cause these injuries. The most common are:

  • Handling of products or material
  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents
  • Falling from heights
  • Being hit by an object or colliding with an object
  • Accidents with tools
  • Strain injury caused by doing the same repetitive movement
  • Trauma from overuse

Workers who are in the manufacturing or retail industries suffer the most injuries from handling products or materials. Workers who suffer the most injuries from falling from distance of heights are in the construction and retail industries. Construction workers, along with those in the manufacturing industries, also suffer the most eye injuries.

When an employee suffers a work-related injury, in can be a frightening and stressful time.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
