Categories of Workers’ Compensation Injuries

There are three main categories into which workers’ compensation injuries typically fall - physical, chemical, and emotional.

Workers' compensation insurance should provide coverage for any injury within these categories:

Physical

Physical injuries may include bruises, bumps, sprains, fractures, and broken bones, among other things. One of the most common injuries suffered in the workplace is orthopedic damage to the back or joints, including the shoulders, knees, or wrists.

These injuries are often caused by a specific incident, such as a slip and fall, or are cumulative in nature, as when carpal tunnel syndrome and other conditions office workers often face.

Gilbert Fisher possesses the expertise to help you achieve a favorable outcome, regardless of the industry in which you suffer a workers' compensation injury.

Chemical

Workers in many different industries are exposed to chemicals, including housekeepers and employees at hotels and hospitals. Chemical exposure can lead to rashes, asthma, chemical burns, and a variety of other injuries and health issues.

Mental Health

Physical injuries and frightening or stressful situations can take a toll on an employee’s mental health, causing considerable stress and anxiety.

Clients dealing with emotional fallout following an armed robbery at their workplace, or a severe injury, such as an amputation, often require psychiatric care or counseling to aid in the recovery process.

Types of Injuries within Various Industries and Professions

There are a wide range of potential injuries in almost every industry. Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

  • Lifting and straining injuries
  • Machinery accidents, resulting in loss of limbs or other serious injuries
  • Cumulative injuries in the hands, shoulders, wrists, elbows, or knees after performing repetitive tasks and motions
  • Injuries from auto accidents, especially if injured while on the job as a bus or truck driver
  • Broken bones, sprains, and bruises
  • Spinal, head, or brain injuries after falling from a great height, or caused by a falling object
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Exposure to chemicals or bodily fluids
  • Other catastrophic, life-threatening injuries

Almost every job poses at least some risk of workers' compensation injury to employees.

Mr. Fisher possesses the experience, empathy, and dedication necessary to help you achieve a positive resolution in your case.
