Most Common Accidents In the Workplace
Workplace accidents are common regardless of the safety precautions your employer has taken or what type of environment you work in. The simple truth is that almost any job comes with risks for physical injury, even the most quiet office environments. But regardless of what type of workplace accident resulted in your injuries, it is important to hire a NJ workers compensation attorney who can get you the workers’ compensation benefits that you need and deserve under the law.
Common Workplace Accident
As a worker, you may suffer virtually any workplace accident. Some of the most common occupational accidents include:
- Slip/trip and fall accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Falls from heights
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Acts of violence
- Collision with a fixed object
- Crush injuries
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Being struck by a falling object
The threats to your safety will range from occupation to occupation. But if you have been hurt in any of these common workplace accidents, you may be eligible for monetary compensation under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation laws, regardless of whether you were at fault for the accident or not. Your NJ workers compensation attorney will help you file a worker’s comp claim against your employer’s insurance carrier and get the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
