Common Workplace Injuries We Represent
There are many different types of claims for Workers Compensation. Generally you can have a specific injury where you get hurt in one incident like your common Slip and Fall accidents. Other injuries can occur over time and are called Continuous Trauma which could include repetitive motions, sitting for long periods of time, working in one position for long periods of time, stress or psychological issues due to work. There are many types of injuries to claim and we would be happy to evaluate you to determine what is the best way to proceed with your claim.
Working with harsh chemicals with no protection can lead to breathing problems in the respiratory system. These diseases are all highly serious and often result in secondary complications such as chronic fatigue, the inability to carry out simple tasks, and shortness of breath. Additionally, most have a high mortality rate and the majority of these illnesses are not diagnosed until many years have passed since the exposure took place.
If you have ever been exposed to harmful chemicals or substances in the workplace, your risk of eventually developing various lung and respiratory illnesses is greatly increased. These cases are generally extremely complicated, because in order to obtain Workers Compensation Benefits for lung or respiratory diseases, it is necessary to prove that workplace exposure was the direct cause.
As a result, it is crucial that you retain a seasoned Work Injury Lawyer.
Of the most common injuries we work with are physical injuries such as back muscle strains, muscle spasms, spinal fractures, pinched nerves and more. These injuries generally occur over a long time period, and if they remain untreated, may result in permanent disability. Due to the difficulty treating these injuries, it is critical that you obtain medical care as soon as possible.
These injuries can occur when lifting heavy materials, having to bend and stand for long periods of time, working physically demanding jobs such as LABORERS, NURSES, TEACHERS, SEWING, CONSTRUCTION, WAREHOUSE WORKERS, FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY and more.
Stress can sometimes manifest itself physically in the digestive system, giving way to heart burn and Acid Reflex Disease. We can send you to a medical specialist to determine the extent of your internal injuries and digestive issues. Some forms of physical problems we have encountered are colon problems, digestive problems, stomach and abdominal pain and more.
Psychologically demanding jobs can be assessed under the California Workers Compensation claims as well. Consider Stress, Anxiety, Harassment by Boss or Co-Workers.
Time demanding jobs with heavy workloads can leave employees mentally stressed, full of anxiety which later leads to other problems such as being unable to sleep or internal issues such as digestive problems.
