Workplace accidents can happen in an office, on a job site or in any other type of work environment. Regardless of what kind of work setting the accident occurs in, the injuries that result can be serious and life-changing.
Workplace accidents can be caused by several factors, the most commonly of which are:
– Falling objects
– Slip, or trip and fall
– Defective equipment
– Inadequate safety precautions
– Exposure to harmful or dangerous substances
– Failure to maintain a safe premises
Regardless of whether or not the injuries are permanent, the victim may still need to take time off from work to recover and, depending on the severity of the injury, they may even prevent that person from working at their full capacity or from returning to work at all. Injuries sustained in a workplace accident often result in significant medical treatment and costly bills, and even lost wages, loss of earning capacity and future medical care.
