Repetitive Stress Injuries, Traumatic Injuries and Occupational Diseases

Some of the most common work injuries include:

Repetitive stress injuries in the workplace can be caused by bending, lifting, stocking, loading and unloading, working levers or gears, standing and using workstations with poor ergonomics. Often causing pain, numbness and swelling, repetitive stress injuries may result in temporary or permanent disability.

Traumatic workplace injuries may be caused by:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Falling objects and merchandise
  • Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
  • Machine and tool accidents
  • Defective products
  • Inadequate safety procedures
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Fires and explosions

If a negligent third party was at fault for your accident, we can help you file a separate third-party liability claim for additional damages.
