Top 10 Causes of Job Injuries

As usual, the other day I was at my desk reading some articles about workers compensation issues when I came across one which listed the Top 10 Causes of the Most Disabling Workplace Injuries in the United States. According to this article, the Top 10 Causes of the Most Serious Job Injuries in America are as follows:

1) Overexertion involving an outside source;

2) Same level falls;

3) Falls to a lower level;

4) Being struck by an object or piece of equipment;

5) Other;

6) Motor vehicle accidents;

7) Tripping injuries without falls;

8) Being caught/compressed by a piece of equipment;

9) Being struck against an object or piece of equipment and

10) Repetitive Motion

If you were hurt at work in one of these ways, or in any other way, and you have any questions about an Alabama Workers Compensation claim, don’t hesitate to call and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Work Injury Lawyers at Powell and Denny today.
