The office: a predictable, safe maze of desks and cubicles. Not always. Office workers are not immune to the dangers of the workplace. While most office workers do not work with heavy equipment, drive heavy trucks, work on ladders or face exposure to harsh chemicals, there is no shortage of ways to suffer a debilitating injury in the office environment.
In many ways, office workers have a difficult time pursuing workers’ compensation benefits. Many of their injuries are due to repetitive stress or are psychological and emotional in nature. These often fall into a gray area, making them ripe for challenges from employers and their insurance carriers.
Personal Service for Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, our Staten Island office injury lawyers are committed to obtaining the full workers’ compensation benefits that injured office workers are entitled to. We have experience pursuing workers’ compensation claims on behalf of office workers injured as a result of:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Lifting injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Psychological and emotional injuries
- Noise exposure
- Poor air quality
- Loss of vision
Due to poor ergonomics, sitting for long periods and looking at electronic screens for extended time, office workers are exposed to many more injuries than people realize. While the injuries suffered in the office setting may not be catastrophic or life-threatening in nature, they can lead to a lifetime of difficulties and a reduced quality of life. This is not acceptable, and we can help make sure you are not alone in your time of need.
Injuries Outside the Office
Salespeople, utility workers and others who travel as part of their job are exposed to additional dangers, such as motor vehicle accidents when driving between job sites or performing other work-related functions. If you were injured away from the office while performing job duties, we can help you pursue a personal injury claim against the third party whose negligence caused your injury. This is in addition to handling your workers’ compensation claim for lost wages and medical expenses.
