Have you sustained injuries in a workplace accident?
Every work environment has certain inherent dangers and hazardous conditions. These dangers can be small or large, depending on the industry and type of work involved. In industries that involve heavy volumes of manual or physical labor, the day-to-day hazardous conditions are likely to be much greater than those industries where work is primarily performed in an office environment. This does not mean workplace accidents cannot occur in offices, however. When repetitive motion, heavy lifting or physical labor is required in a job, a worker is capable of suffering debilitating injuries. Safety violations and a perilous work environment can also lead to workplace injuries.
