Different careers require employees to work in all different environments. Some work environments have repetitive motions or standing requirements and others jobs are located in hazardous environments.
Many different environments are high risk for workplace injuries.
When a future employee agrees to do a job, it is common to trust that the environment in which s/he will work will be safe especially over the long term. There are times when workplace injuries happen due to the type work performed or the environment itself.
Workplace injuries range from minor to severe. Minor injuries can occur due to repetitive motions such as an assembly line, lifting inventory or standing long hours. These can cause muscle sprains, back strains or injury to joints. Long hours of computer work over years can cause chronic similar injuries. And there are times when the work itself is hazardous such as working with chemicals and biohazards or the environment is hazardous such as construction sites.
Employers and companies for the most part work hard to ensure the safety of their employees. Furthermore, federal and state laws are put into place to protect employees from workplace injuries.
But in cases where negligence is involved, or a known hazard has not been prevented, an employee can suffer small to severe workplace injuries that result in time off of work, lost wages, inability to keep commitments, physical pain, medical costs, physical therapy, medications, cost of travel to specialists, as well as emotional and psychological costs.
In severe cases where a workplace injury causes a long term or permanent disability, greater losses are incurred such as loss of future employment, progressive career opportunities, and attainment of lifelong goals and enjoyment of life.
If an injury has occurred, it may be difficult file a claim to be reimbursed for more than just the cost of current medical bills and related costs because professional attorneys of the insurance companies work hard to save their company money.
