Types of Occupational Injuries
There are many types of injuries that can come from many different kinds of occupations. Some of the most common are:
- Delivery companies. Most delivery companies have strict deadlines that must be met. Often, employees are injured as a result of the physical demands of delivery work, such as lifting and stacking product, moving heavy items up and down a ramp or slipping on wet surfaces. The men and women who perform these difficult tasks often incur injuries.
- Food service industry. The food service industry is a demanding profession. From the factory worker to the prep cook and cashier, there are dangers inherent in each job. Common injuries are from slip and fall, lifting heavy items, electric shock as well as accidents caused by co-workers. If you are injured at the workplace, you should consult a Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado workplace injury attorney at Weddell & Haller for legal advice.
- Labor and construction. Industrial labor and construction are professions that contribute to a high number of workplace injuries. Most common injuries result from heavy lifting, overhead reaching and lifting, tripping or falling, as well as labor and construction accidents caused by the negligence of others.
- Department/home improvement stores. Department and home improvement stores employ millions of workers. These jobs require back-breaking work that can easily cause a physical injury when lifting, pushing or pulling.
- Transportation. Many jobs involving frequent driving put employees at risk of work car accidents/work truck accidents. These cases can be different from other workers’ compensation cases, often involving third-party liability claims against the negligent drivers who caused the accidents.
There are, of course, a great many more occupations that can result in workplace injuries. No matter what your job or your injury, if you were injured at work, it is important to report the injury to a supervisor or manager and to fill out all appropriate reports and paperwork.
