Have you suffered a workplace accident?

On Behalf of | Mar 6, 2017 | Workplace Accidents |

Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere. They are just a fact of life. However, accidents in the workplace are different than your regular run of the mill accidents. If an accident like a ladder fall happens at work, it can be very serious. If you work in any environment where accidents are possible (pretty much everywhere), you should be aware of what steps to take in the event that you fall victim to one.

Formally, a “workplace accident” describes any incident in the course of regular work in which an employee of the company is injured physically, occupationally or mentally. Sometimes the employee involved in the accident is at fault for the accident. Sometimes faulty equipment is to blame. However, in other cases, the employer is negligent because they have placed their employee in an unsafe work environment. 



A common workplace accident could be any of the following:

      Falls to lower levels

      Slips / trips and falls

      Overexertion due to lifting / lowering

      Repetitive motion injuries

      Machine crushing or entanglement

      Work-related vehicle accidents

      Falling objects or debris


      Mine Collapse

      Scaffolding Fall

      Trench Collapse

      Ladder fall


If you have been injured at work, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. It is also important that you protect your rights by reviewing your accident with an employment attorney. In some cases an attorney will recommend that you seek workers’ compensation as in return for your injuries and any lost wages you have suffered. In other cases, an attorney my determine that the most appropriate course of action is for you to file a formal lawsuit for your damages.
