Attorneys Representing Victims of Workplace Accidents

Scott Monge

Risks and hazards are part of the job. But too often, accidents result in serious injury and death that could have been prevented. They happen because companies ignored safety rules or failed to provide proper safety equipment. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says that more than 3 million reportable injuries occurred in the American workplace within the past year. More than 4,500 of those workplace injuries proved to be fatal.

If you have suffered a serious work-related injury or lost a loved one to an accident on the job, the workplace injury lawyers of The Accident & Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates will aggressively protect your rights to obtain workers’ compensation and pursue additional damages for your loss.

Common Workplace Accidents and Injury

U.S. employers represent a wide variety of industries such as manufacturing, construction, trade and services. The BLS says workplace injuries occur at a rate of 3.5 cases per 100 full-time equivalent workers.

According to Liberty Mutual Insurance Company’s annual Workplace Safety Index, the top causes of serious, or disabling, non-fatal workplace injuries are:

  • Overexertion injuries from excessive lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying and/or throwing.
  • Falls on same level.
  • Falls to lower level.
  • Bodily reaction injuries from bending, climbing, reaching, standing, sitting, slipping and/or tripping without falling.
  • Struck by object, such as a tool falling on a worker from above.
  • Highway incidents (automobile accident).
  • Caught in/compressed by equipment or objects.
  • Struck against object, such as walking into a door or wall.
  • Repetitive motion injuries caused by repeated stress or strain.
  • Assaults/violent acts.

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you may be able to obtain money. These funds can help you with medical bills, rehabilitation costs, future medical expenses, lost wages and lost productivity through workers’ compensation and/or an additional personal injury claim. In the case of a fatal workplace accident, a family may file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault parties and be compensated for their losses. A court may also award money for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
