There are numerous industries and professions where workers are put in harm’s way every second they are on the job. Construction workers, employees on a manufacturing line, auto mechanics and other individuals who work at jobs requiring physical labor often suffer from injuries caused by repetitive motion, falling objects, malfunctioning equipment and more.
Improper safety procedures and a lack of proper supervision or training can also lead to work related injuries in these types of professions. Office workers and executives are not immune from workplace accidents either.
Anytime an employee is injured while at work or during the course of performing his or her duties, workers’ compensation laws give that employee the opportunity to seek compensation. Employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance in the event their employees suffer a work related injury. This type of insurance helps cover medical expenses and loss of
wages. In some instances workers’ compensation may not be enough to cover all of a person’s accident-related expenses. When that is the case, filing a lawsuit against any third party whose negligence contributed to the accident may give an individual a better chance at recovering the compensation he or she is entitled to receive. Should an individual suffer
a temporary or permanent disability, he or she may also be eligible to claim disability insurance.
