Common Injuries And Accidents
- Back injuries: We have handled many claims involving back injuries at work. When someone falls, lifts heavy objects or performs a back-stretching motion repeatedly over time, back injuries are common.
- Falls: Especially on construction sites and in factories, falls are common accidents and often result in serious injuries.
- Repetitive stress injuries: Any physical action repeated often over a long period of time can result in significant injuries. Everyone from office workers to machine operators and factory workers can suffer these injuries. California is one of six states that has a much more lenient standard for obtaining compensation from repetitive stress injuries compared with other states. For technical workers, those who do a lot of typing, etc., there is a good chance of getting workers’ compensation benefits in California for repetitive stress injuries.
- Machinery-caused injuries: Accidents involving vehicles or other heavy machinery can result in loss of limb, burns, paralysis and other catastrophic injuries.
These are just a few of the common accidents that can occur in the workplace. At The Law Offices of John G. Kiwan, we can help you through every step of the complex workers’ compensation process.
