Common Injuries Sustained By Office Workers
While working in an office may not seem like one of the more dangerous jobs in Nevada, there are a number of hazards that office workers face. Some of the more common injuries office workers experience include:
- Falls: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the most common cause of disabling injuries sustained by workers in an office setting. In fact, office workers are approximately 2.5 times more likely to suffer a fall that results in a disabling injury than workers in other occupations.
- Lifting: Lifting even small or lightweight objects can sometimes result in severe injuries to office workers’ backs and necks.
- Work Station Ergonomics: Many office workers suffer injuries from sitting in chairs that do not fit their body size correctly or offer ample support, continually typing or writing at an uncomfortable angle, or even staring at a poorly positioned computer screen for prolonged periods of time.
- Equipment Malfunction or Misuse: Frayed cords, defective office equipment, overloaded power supplies and poorly designed office furnishings can cause serious injuries to office workers as well.
Obtain Maximum Compensation
If you have suffered significant injuries as an office worker, our firm will help you sort through the possible causes of your accident to ensure that you receive the compensation that is rightfully yours. While a workers’ compensation claim can be pursued regardless of fault, the settlements commonly offered by insurance companies are so meager that they rarely cover the total cost of victims’ injuries. Our team will negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your settlement, and if necessary litigate your case. If equipment manufacturers or other third parties are partially to blame for your injuries, we will pursue personal injury claims or defective product claims against them as well.
