Types of Injuries

There are many different types of workplace accidents and injuries can that sideline you or a loved one for weeks or months while you recover from your accident. Some of the most common workplace injuries we deal with include:

In each circumstance, any one of these workplace injuries can turn tragic and result in the death of a loved one due to an on-site accident. In such instances, your family may be eligible for death benefits or possibly be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Common Causes

Workplace accidents occur for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Unsafe working conditions - From water on the floor to unmarked hazards, workplaces can be very dangerous.
  • Negligent business owners - Business owners have a legal obligation to make sure workplaces are clean, well-lighted places.
  • Defective equipment - Manufacturer errors or poor maintenance can result in equipment malfunctions which cause serious injuries.
  • Reckless co-workers - When people work too fast or don't follow safety guidelines, other workers can get seriously hurt.
  • Untrained workers - Companies have a responsibility to train workers and prevent workplace injuries.
  • Impaired co-workers - Workers under the influence of drugs or alcohol can easily cause serious injuries to co-workers.
  • Exposure to hazardous materials - Breathing hazardous chemicals, asbestos and other dangerous materials can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer.
  • Operator error - When workers make mistakes themselves, especially when operating heavy machinery, the consequences can be devastating.
  • Repetitive work - Warehouse, meat packing, factory and office workers are especially vulnerable to repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, due to performing the same task at work, sometimes for hours a day for years.

Remember, PA has a no-fault workers' compensation system. Whatever type of workplace injury you're dealing with, our law firm can help you hold your employer accountable and fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.
