Workplace accidents can cover a wide range. And while most accidents fall into certain familiar categories, there are many other types of accidents, which can be just as serious and often result in very severe injuries.
We know because our Bethlehem law firm has worked with injury victims dealing with a wide range of accidents throughout Lehigh Valley. That's why we want to meet with you as soon as possible to learn more about your accident.

Types Of Accidents
There are many other types of workplace accidents. Some of the most common ones we handle at our law firm include:
Work-related car accidents - Many people sustain serious injuries in workplace car accidents due to the amount of driving many jobs require.
Third-party workplace accidents - Term used to describe accidents caused by someone who works for a company different than the one you work for. Construction accidents often involve third-party workplace accidents.
Hospital accidents - Hospitals can be very hazardous places for workers. From exposure to dangerous infections to slip and fall accidents, hospital workers can easily become patients there due to a serious accident.
Warehouse accidents - Back injuries, broken bones and other serious injuries often happen in warehouses. And since there are so many warehouses located in Lehigh Valley, such accidents often occur.
Manufacturing accidents - Factory work can be very dangerous. Burn injuries, loss of limbs and other severe injuries can easily occur depending on which job you perform at a manufacturing plant.
Workplace assault - Violent co-workers or members of the public can cause serious harm when they attack you in the workplace.
Slip and fall accidents - Among the most common workplace accidents, slip and fall accidents can instantly result in a serious injury.
Workplace fires - Fires at work can cause serious harm to workers, from burn injuries caused by direct contact with the fire to injuries or illness caused by smoke inhalation (breathing in smoke).
