Common types of injuries
Because there are so many different hazards that exist, worksite injuries vary wildly in industrial fields. Our firm has experience working with all injury types, including:
Back, Shoulder or Neck Injuries
Back injuries are some of the most common on industrial worksites and can be caused by slips, falls, mishandling heavy equipment or other accidents.
Brain / Head Injuries
Brain injuries can occur from falling objects, slips and falls, or equipment malfuctioning when not properly maintained.
Broken / Fractured Bones
Broken bones can occur when a worker is pinned or crushed by machinery, falls or slips, or is injured from equipment failure.
Burns can happen if there is a fire or explosion, but can also be the result of handling dangerous chemicals.
Caught-in/between, Crushed or Pinned
These injuries occur when machinery malfuctions or if a truck or crane accident pins/crushes the worker.
Electrocutions happen when live or faulty wiring isn't marked, or it fails to meet regulations.
Exposure to harmful chemicals
Harmful chemicals can cause burns, eye injuries, and other possible illnesses when handled by workers.
Eye injuries can be the result of harmful chemicals, flying debris, or falling objects.
Hearing loss is generally a result of sustained, loud noises. However, hearing loss can be caused by many other accidents as well.
Loss of Limbs
Amputation, or loss of limbs, occurs when equipment malfuntions, tools aren't handled properly, or from many other serious accidents.
Mesothelioma is caused by the exposure to hazardous chemicals, particularly asbestos, present in many worksites.
Scars or Disfigurement
Scars and disfigurement can be the result of truck or crane accidents, using unsafe equipment, malfuctioning machinery, falling objects, or many other workplace accidents.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are generally the result of slips, falls, or being crushed/caught between equipment – among other accidents.
Wrongful death can occur under many circumstances involving worksite accidents such as falls, being crushed, equipment malfuction and more.
