Common Types Of Work Injuries

There are many types of injuries a person may suffer as a result of a workplace accident. The most common types of work injuries can typically be organized into the following categories:

  • Specific injuries – Physical or emotional trauma caused by one specific incident or accident at a certain time
  • Cumulative trauma injuries – Orthopedic damage caused by repetitive motion
  • Occupational diseases – Illnesses stemming from work tasks, working conditions or job-related exposure to hazardous substances, such as asbestos
  • Mental injuries – Experiencing or witnessing traumatic incidents or workplace injuries may lead to mental health problems like anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Workers’ compensation laws, including laws that determine what injuries or what conditions can be work-related, continuously evolve. It is in your best interest to work with an attorney who is familiar with these changes. Hipp Carlson Law PLLC offers a lengthy, proven track record.
