Most Common Work-Related Accidents


Some occupations are more hazardous than others, but accidents can happen in any work environment. Work-related accidents can cause minor cuts or bruises, or severe injuries such as fractures, brain injuries, or even fatalities. The consequences of severe injuries can be drastic, and they can range from temporary inability to work and earn income to a permanent disability that makes it difficult for you to live a normal life. It is important that you take extra precautions to prevent injuries while you are working. Here are the most common types of work-related accidents.

Slip, Trip, and Fall

Slips, trips, and falls can happen to people in all kinds of professions. As long as you need to walk, you will be exposed to the risk of such accidents. You may slip on a wet patch, trip over a cable, or fall down the stairs while you are moving around in your workplace. A wide range of injuries can result from slips, trips, and falls, and some of them include back injuries, head injuries, muscle sprains and strains, fractures, paralysis, and death.

Cumulative Trauma

Cumulative trauma can result from repetitive physical actions that you need to perform while working. If you hold a job that requires you to use the computer frequently, such as secretary or receptionist, there is a higher chance that you will develop repetitive wrist injuries or elbow problems. If you are a factory worker or a construction worker, you may develop pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, or knees over the course of your career. Prolonged standing can cause hip and knee problems, varicose veins, or phlebitis. Cumulative trauma can lead to physical disability and prevent you from performing your work duties or certain daily activities effectively.

Occupational Exposure

Some people work in hazardous environments, such as refineries and chemical plants, where they are constantly exposed to toxic substances and other detrimental conditions. Toxic fluids and gases, chemicals, and molds, as well as overexposure to light, harmful radiation, extreme temperatures, and noise can cause a wide range of health problems, including asthma, allergic reaction, lung disease, cancer, hearing loss, visual disorder, and others.

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can occur when you are driving to and from your workplace, going to a meeting, or performing a work-related errand. If you are working as a taxi or bus driver, delivery man, or dispatch person, you will be exposed to greater risks of road accidents. Injuries that can result from auto accidents include head injuries, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, fractures, and others. A serious road accident can also lead to paralysis and death.

Work-related injuries do not only cause inconvenience, discomfort, and pain; they can also be financially costly. After you have sustained an injury, you may have to seek medical treatment or undergo surgery, and you may not be able to continue working. You will need a substantial amount of money to pay for your medical expenses and get through a period of unemployment. Most companies offer compensation for victims of work-related accidents, but the amount may not be adequate. If you want to get fair compensation for your work-related injuries, it is best that you engage the service of a personal injury lawyer.
