Overexertion

A worker can sustain an overexertion injury when they lift, pull, throw, or push something, usually when it’s a heavy object. The individual pulls or strains a muscle or maybe even dislocates a joint. This claim is most common with factory or construction work, which involves manual labor. Police officers also frequently file this type of workers’ compensation claim.

Slip and Falls or Trips

Slip and falls or trips are claims that come about when an employee slips on a wet floor or takes a fall outside while on the premises due to snow or ice. Claims for this type of injury usually come from security staff, groundskeepers, and store clerks.

Fall to Lower Level

This claim is filed when a worker falls down a flight of stairs, from a roof or off a ladder. Construction workers and roofers typically make this kind of claim for workers’ compensation. Sometimes, it could involve a teacher falling down a flight of stairs.

Bodily Reaction

A bodily reaction injury can happen when an employee trips or slips but avoids actually falling. It occurs when a person catches their fall and suffers an injury like a sprained ankle or wrist. Nurses and police officers commonly file this type of claim.

Struck by Object

If a worker is struck by an object that falls from a shelf or that is dropped to a lower level and suffers injury, they would make this type of claim for workers’ compensation. Restaurant, retail and office workers frequently make this claim.

Struck Against an Object

A worker who falls against an object like furniture, a barricade or some other type of stationary object and sustains an injury will make a claim for workers’ compensation. Factory and office workers frequently file this claim.

Highway Incident

Truck drivers are most at risk for injuries stemming from a highway incident. People who travel frequently for business and police officers also file this type of workers’ compensation claim.

Machinery Accidents

These accidents occur when heavy machinery injuries a worker by mutilating or crushing a part of the body. These injuries are devastating and can result in sizeable medical costs. In many cases, workers who are inadequately trained file this type of workers’ compensation claim.

Repetitive Motion

This is the type of injury that occurs from performing the same motion all the time. For example, using a computer in a workstation that isn’t ergonomic can lead to this claim being made if the employee develops carpal tunnel syndrome.

Workplace Violence

Workplace violence is another type of common workers’ compensation claim. It occurs when disgruntled employees or former employees commit an act of violence at the workplace.
