Convenience Store Clerks Jobs among the Most Dangerous

Convenience Store Clerks Jobs among the Most Dangerous

For years reports have stated that Convenience Store Clerks have one of the most dangerous jobs in the Nation. They face a greater likelihood of being injured or killed during a robbery than any job I can think of. All you have to do is google convenience store clerk and hit “News” to see how many times this happens a day across the Nation.

Along the same vein, in my experience, one of the jobs which leads to the most job injuries in Alabama is that of a convenience store clerk. While iron workers, steel workers, construction workers, C.N.A.s and other jobs require more frequent lifting of heavier weight, an average convenience store worker engages in a lot of bending, lifting and stretching throughout every work day. I could not count the number of convenience store clerks who have contacted our firm for assistance after suffering a job injury that occurred while stocking the beer or sodas, or after tripping over merchandise in the floor.

We routinely speak with convenience store workers who have suffered a herniated disk or torn rotator cuff suffered while performing their job duties, and many times, at the time they were injured, a supervisor or manager is not present.

If you are a convenience store clerk who has suffered a job injury, the first thing you need to do in let a supervisor know of your injury. Reporting an accident is not enough, you must inform them that you believe that you suffered an injury. While Alabama law allows you up to 90 days to report a job injury, the sooner the better. If your injury appears to be serious, then it would be in your best interest to at least speak with an experienced workers compensation lawyer about your rights.

If you work anywhere in Alabama as a convenience store clerk, you were hurt at work and have questions about your rights under the Alabama Workers Compensation Laws, don’t hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Workers Compensation Lawyers at Powell and Denny today for a Free Consultation.
