Common Workplace Injuries

More than 4 million people each year in America sustain a workplace injury, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Workplace injuries can happen for many reasons, often without warning. In an instant, you can sustain a serious injury that prevents you from working and affects your ability to live your life to the fullest. Other times, your injury may be the result of long-term stress or repetitive physical activity.

At the Slechter Law Firm in Louisville, Kentucky, attorneys Mat Slechter and Meredith Kirklin Slechter have dedicated their careers to fighting for the rights of workplace injury victims throughout Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana.

The Slechters believe everyone deserves equal treatment under the law and all the rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. That’s why we can work tirelessly on your behalf if you were injured at work.

Common workplace injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Chemical burns
  • Inhaling toxic fumes
  • Electrical shocks
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Scaffolding injuries
  • Crane and forklift injuries
  • Severed limbs
  • Hearing loss
  • Cuts and lacerations

Serious Injuries On The Job Can Happen Fast With Lasting Effects

Many workplace injuries also often take place at construction sites. When they do, construction accidents can often be serious, sometimes even fatal. If your family is dealing with a fatal construction accident, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. And if the accident was caused by another company working at the same construction site, you may be dealing with a third party workplace injury.

Whatever type of workplace injury you’re dealing with, it’s important you seek immediate medical attention. Let a doctor decide the severity of your injury. Then contact the Slechter Law Firm. We can help you or your family deal with all the red tape associated with a workplace injury so you can focus on your recovery.

Workplace injury accidents might seem straightforward. You might think you don’t need a lawyer to represent you if someone else clearly caused the accident. Don’t be so sure. Your own company might even try to point the blame at you. And even if investigators determine that someone else caused the accident, insurance companies often do whatever they can to pay people as little money as possible after an accident.
