Common Types of Office Injuries
While most desk jobs in offices do not have some of the more obvious or life-threatening occupational dangers such as construction or industrial work, office work can still expose workers to a wide range of job-related hazards. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, tens of thousands of work-related health problems are reported by office workers in the United States each year.
Common office injuries and accidents include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Slip and falls
- Ergonomic injuries
- Office fires
Repetitive typing, poor posture, lack of ergonomic equipment, extended exposure to a computer screen without breaks, poor office air quality, and hazardous materials used in a building’s construction can all cause workers to become injured or fall ill. If you have become injured or ill in connection to your occupation, our attorneys can guide you through the process of filing a claim under your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance in pursuit of financial reimbursement for your resulting medical bills, lost wages, and physical therapy costs.
