Common Workplace Injuries That Can Result in Workers' Compensation Claims

Workers' compensation claims can take many forms. Injuries can be received in various ways, each of which carries some form of compensation through your company's workers' compensation insurance. The following are some examples of possible work-related injuries.

Slips, Trips & Falls Claim

Slipping or tripping causes more injuries in the workplace than almost any other type of accident. Falls can cause a variety of injuries, including broken bones, lacerations, and concussions.

Overexertion Claims

Overexertion claims are often the result of trying to do too much at once. Pushing the body past its limits can be dangerous, especially if you have other pre-existing health issues.

Struck by an Object Claim

Being struck by an object can cause a variety of injuries, such as concussions, lacerations, and internal injuries.

Falling Several Floors Claim

Falling down several floors or to a lower level can cause extensive injuries, even if you are working with a harness and other protective gear.

Bodily Reaction from Falling Claim

Trying to prevent yourself from falling may cause just as severe an injury as the fall itself. Pulled muscles, broken bones, or dislocated joints may be the result of trying to break a fall.

Vehicle Accidents Claim

Injuries received in vehicle accidents while on the job are also common. Seeking medical treatment immediately will identify "silent" injuries that are not initially visible.

Running into or Falling onto an Object Claim

Bumping or falling into an object can be extremely painful and result in significant injuries, like contusions, concussions, and bone fractures.

Machinery Accident Claims

Working with machinery increases an employee's risk of injury. Although organizations do their best to prevent hazards in the workplace and ensure proper precautions are in place, accidents and injuries can still occur.

Violence in the Workplace Claim

Workplace violence can occur wherever tempers flare and get out of control. These types of injuries can take many different forms. Some may even be life-threatening.

Claims for Repetitive Motion Injuries

Performing the same task repeatedly for days, weeks, months, or years can result in repetitive motion injuries with long-term, chronic repercussions.
